Week 10: Disasters. Did you experience any natural disasters in your lifetime? Tell us about them. If not, then discuss these events that happened to parents, grandparents or others in your family.
I have never experienced a natural disaster in my lifetime, nor do I care to. My mom went through a tornado when she was about six years old that destroyed her house and her grandparents store. She described it to me once that it "sounded like a freight train". The family dog pulled my mom and my aunt (her sister) to safety, from under the table they were under when the tornado hit the house. But as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words:
|The aftermath of the tornado- I believe this is what is left of their house.|
|My Grandparent's Dog (Collie) that saved my Mom and Aunt|
|My Grandpa (without the hat) and the sherrif (far right) and two local men|
