My category ‘Pictures & Stories’ are posts with me writing a fictional, creative short story about a picture.
Argent Match –
The chief meteorologist did not predict it, and the general population was surprised and alarmed. The forecast was for clouds and rain and possible thunderstorms. No one saw it coming and that day would be different from all others. That day the method of forecasting the weather would change.
It started as an ordinary day and the forecast was the usual for that time of the year. History was to dictate the day and all evidence was present – there were no questions. The forecast was in place and the expectations set.
The day started as usual and expectations were met and the clouds gather in a mass of unknown certainty. Then the change started and the meteorologists and others started their different views for the green sky. The change in color was swift and the anecdotal signs could not be dispelled.
The weather preceded with the usual flare and burst of electrical fierceness and the skies began the outpouring of hail beyond believe. Shelter of the unknowing was sought and upon the conclusion of the widest day in weather history, the result of unexpectant was viewed.
The ground was covered with the rare occurrence and history was made. The argent match was equal to none – the population was surprised and alarmed.
