Forget cats and dogs, It was raining elephants and hippopotamuses outside.(Im pretty sure that is not a good exaggeration of this phrase.. but just hang in there with me) My husband was out-of-town on business for a couple of days and I was home with 3 small kids and a nervous dog. The lights began to flicker as the rain poured even harder. It was getting dark outside and my youngest child, who was only a few months old, had refused to take a nap earlier so I had to strap him to me, while he was screaming, so that I can get food on the table for my other two kids who had been cooped up in the house all day due to the weather. The dog was nervous and needed to go outside, but my spoiled mutt refused to step a paw out in the rain. After another VERY long hour with the 2 high energy kids, one overly tired infant, a dog nervously whimpering and the weather prompting me to get the closet ready in case of a tornado, the lights finally went out.
My two older kids immediately began crying in fear of the lightning flashing into the pitch-dark house, while the youngest child finally quieted down. The dog then began pacing nervously around my feet. She was usually not a nervous dog, so it didn’t make me feel any easier that she was acting odd over the storm.
That’s when… I smelled something… … and No, it wasn’t the dog. My youngest had proceeded to overfill his diaper with what I can only describe as an ungodly like substance that only Hollywood could contrive. He didn't

In my mind, I often try to place myself in the shoes of the people that went through the storm. It scares me so much, and even more so if I had to go through it with my child. As with Lydia in her story, I would probably try to keep calm and think logically. Panicking would just cause emotions to
Our room had a balcony that overlooked a small piece of nature, and as I looked down, I saw something small and furry in the grass. It was averaged sized for its species and had the furriest little tail ever. I walked around, calmly looking for something to eat, preferably a rodent. I got the rest of my family to see a cat we named it Biscotty the
The weather was only getting terrible, because the severe chances of a hurricane turned into a hurricane warning. The weather forecast said there was a hurricane forecasted to hit Florida in 20 minutes. We had to get into the car, and drive through the evacuation routes to a hurricane shelter to get out of the dreadful weather. As the car was driving through the evacuation routes the radio said it was a category 1 hurricane, and it had a speed of 67 - 85 miles per hour. Our car was driving by when the wind caused a palm tree to fall down on a suv.
I was in my reading circle group. This is something that everyone had , we were at a huge school, so we were all in different rooms with our reading groups for that time. The window was open, which let in a small breeze, that was also combined with the sound of a thunderstorm in the distance. I was and still am terrified of storms, but I can control this fear of loud noises at school, so I was calm. A huge breeze suddenly came in but we thought nothing of it. We were reading Junie B. is
Since my mom watched kids after school, my sister and I had to wait to go anywhere until those kids left. When they left, my family all got in the car and we drove to Lamancha; an animal rescue center. When we got there and pulled in there were dogs everywhere, they surrounded the car. There were probably about 15 dogs, both big and little. All the dogs eventually backed up and we were able to park.
My mom, Kailli and I were spending our first week of summer in the hot dry sun of Palm Desert. As we were planning out our agenda for the next day, we came across a brochure for the Taquitz falls three miles deep into the hot Palm springs desert. We had to see it with our own eyes to believe it. A waterfall in the middle of the desert seemed bizarre, so the next morning we set off for our hike at six in the morning. After a couple bumps in the road we finally began our hike
Before I moved to Canton, I lived in Wethersfield CT. One day during late summer when I was around 6 years old there was a bad thunderstorm. It ended up turning into a storm with tornadoes. My dad was in the middle of mowing the lawn and suddenly came inside, which is unusual because he likes to finish what he starts. When he came in he said that the sky didn't look right. My mom stood near the stove making chicken salad sandwiches with a worried look on her face.
There was bright lightening. They looked up, frightened. Above them black furious clouds started to gather. They began to run. Then the thunder roared, and the rain came down in torrents. <<

Link Technologies, a small firm located in San Jose, California, is currently engaged in the development, manufacture, and sale of high-speed fax modems for use in personal computers. The company was created in 1980 by Mr. James Lee, a researcher who was employed at IBM’s T.J. Watson research center, and two former graduate school classmates from Cornell University.
In addition to this, weeks later, I found myself at a shelter looking for a dog. As I walked down the hallway I saw this dog that popped out at me. He was so little, dark brown, big bold brown eyes, and all white paws, sitting there looking at me waging his tail. He even resembled a dog I had in the past. So I asked the lady to see him. When she brought him out we played and had a great bond like I have never experienced with any of my dogs. My family was also at ease because he was the only puppy to interact without
I feel the intent of this story is to show conformity. In the very beginning the author mentions “dogs”; and to contrast my theory here is a statement from the story “ These dogs lacked the wheedling complicity of their tamed brother” (Benioff, David.”The devil comes to orekhavo”when the nines roll over. New York: Pengnin,2004.) . The meaning I get from this is that the soldiers leski is around are “untamed”. They don't think like he does, they no longer respect moral and ethical laws, they have reached the point of we have to do whatever it takes to stay alive. The story also mentions one of the dogs having a collar, and leski felt the others made fun of her for it. Which is very similar to the action that took place with Liski and his helmet.
At first it was normal. At least as normal as it could have been with a giant, crazy, hurricane in our neighborhood. We were all inside doing our normal things as if it were a perfectly normal night, even though that night was a scary one indeed. But then we heard our garage door shuddering because of how violent the winds were.
My first dog was named Toby, he was a very white, ball of fluff. He blended in with the shiny white crispy snow on December 25, 2006. My sisters and I were on our way home from my dad’s house when all of a sudden we pulled into my mom’s house. On Sunday, December 25, 2006, Toby was waiting at our house. We all got out of the car on that cold snowy day and walked on the slippery sidewalk. The snow was like a chilling carpet on the bottoms of our feet. My mom opened the door with a camera so my sisters and I knew something was up. A shocking step in the house and we saw a very fluffy dog, we were very excited. He was like a deer in headlights. There was a bunch of screaming and yelling going on at that moment between the three of us. We
