Everyone was talking about the tornado coming with the evening storm. We went into our basement and tried to go to bed, but I was too nervous and stayed awake. The storm began, the lights started flickering, and the fringe on the ceiling light fixture started swaying from the winds. All of a sudden, it was pitch black in the house! I tried to feel around for the flashlight, but instead knocked down a carton of eggs sitting on the counter. What a mess! Then I washed myself and the counter, the storm had passed and we were all safe!
