A neighbor comes to visit

I walked out onto the patio to get some fresh air. I looked to my right and there he was sitting. The neighborhood cat I had saved from the coyote. He had finally came back. I looked over at him and he looked over at me as if to say “Hey human.” Then he went back to looking into the woods for something to hunt. He had a grand time out there cleaning him self and just chilling. He doesn’t seem afraid of me anymore.

Derecho means straight

Monday afternoon, I didn’t even know it was supposed to rain. My mom called me to warn me. I learned what a derecho is. It got as dark as night around my place. The power went out before the storm hit. When it did hit the trees whipped around and the tornado siren went off. Luckily here it didn’t last long. The power came back on after about 20 minutes. My Mom’s power was out for five days.
