What a Night!!!

by Shirley McLain

“Get up now, we have to get to the cellar.  Don’t get dressed, run! My neighbor yelled.”
What a way to wake up. It was drilled into me enough how you could wind up dead in the top of a tree twenty miles from home.  One never knows with a tornado what might happen. 

I ran out the back door and into a large Postoak tree, bounced off and kept going. The cellar, which was built into the side of a hill had a problem I was not aware of before I entered. Scorpions were everywhere. I freaked out.
