Irregardless an't a word it's a Life Style
We huddled like war urchins waiting for the all clear. The heat of the day stopped burning us alive and began to smother us under a mad barber's steaming shaving towels. Outside the sky ripped off its jewels, flinging them in a chaotic cannonade of napalm infused glory. Then it hid behind a roiling black mass of smoking evil.
The wind screamed its defiance flailing the already tormented earth with everything it could rip, pluck or tear out from its roots. Cows became meat missiles launched at mobile homes. Mobile homes became shrapnel adding insult to anything left standing.
Then God flushed the toilet. Ten minutes into the rain, Noah could have sailed down Main Street. Later we found a Hawaiian surfer on Bob's Knoll with half the skin flayed off his body, all of his bones broken, his leg tethered to his board, and still he had a smile on his lips. It rained so much fish drowned and alligators went on vacation to Minnesota. There was talk about hiring a lawyer to sue God for breach of the rainbow contract.
After it was over, we rebuilt of course. Rednecks are like that and the word would not be the same without some of us living on the flood plains.
