At the first strike of lightning or rumble of thunder, I would start the search for a flash light. I would gather candles and search desperately for a lighter or a match, opening all of the drawers in the kitchen, searching in the couch, walking into my mom's room, and good god she was a smoker and smokers have to have something to light their cigarettes, so where the hell are all the damn lighters?!
I would turn the TV on. Satellite out again. No local channels. And I just want to know about the weather. About the storm. And it's starting to rain harder, and the wind is blowing really fast, and I know there are sirens, but what if they don't work and there is a tornado coming and I'll never even know that we were in a warning because the god damn satellite doesn't fucking work when it rains and what the hell good does that do me?!
