Green Sky

Everyone talks about the Snowstorm of 78 but who remembers the summer night that the sky turned grass green? My mom was working in the garden and yelled for everyone to come out. It was hot but the air was completely still. No sound. We walked to the front of the house and neighbours were in the street staring at the sky. No one was talking. My mom would never admit that she was afraid but I was. I’d never seen anything like it before. A neighbour or someone finally said that a tornado was coming and it turned into one of those late 70’s nights where we spent the evening in the basement. I don’t remember how bad the storm was or if there was an actual tornado but I don’t recall seeing anything like it since.
