The Crypt Is About To Open Up !!!
I've got a very real and frightening story coming up. It's about tornadoes and it comes from a co-worker who is going to NIU to become a meteorologist. Why is that so interesting, you may ask? Have you ever heard of storm chasers? Well, Justin is a member of a group of storm chasers and he got up close to a developing storm that became a tornado which took out a small Iowa town back in the spring. I'll let you read about it rather than go into detail about it.
Like many of you, I am a writer. I like to write from the gut. The world is full of horrifying things. Man-made as well as natural. Natural disasters are of course, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, tsunamis, earth quakes, ice storms, snow storms--all which are in themselves terrifying to go through. I will be posting Justin's story tomorrow. It is called The Storm Chasers. It is in his words, and he has done a superb job I think in making it interesting and understandable in layman's terms. Pictures? Oh, my yes. The pictures alone will give you chills! I would not have been able to sit in a vehicle and have something like that be developing practically over my head. You'll see.
Justin's Storm Chasers story will be the introduction of my posts for the coming month of October. I hope to entertain as well as inform, and possibly frighten you, if I can. Remember that I said that the world is full of frightening things.
