Bloody Weather

November 30, 2010

It looks like we’re in for some pretty severe weather today. There are tornado watches and warnings all over the place, including the Southeast Alabama county we live in. So far we’ve just seen some gusty winds and rain, and hopefully that’s all we’ll see. Ughh…nothing creeps me out more than severe weather when I’m by myself.
UPDATE:
So I was in the sunroom attempting to get a picture of a woodpecker for my friend Robyn, and suddenly the sirens went off, the emergency broadcast came on and the wind picked up all at once. I prepared a place in the closet, but decided the bathroom was a better idea and gathered my stuff up to take in there. Then the storm intensified and I started hearing things hitting the house. I was terrified and by myself, and then thought I’d better put my wedding rings and class ring on…just in case…so they would know who I was. The word “helpless” doesn’t even begin to describe what I felt. I thought…nevermind. Anyway, the sirens went off and here I am. I still don’t know if it was an actual tornado or not, it hasn’t been determined yet. Next time we are definitely getting a house with a basement!

Zombie Apocalypse-The Plan 5

November 30, 2010


I’m going to mix things up a bit and say that we are all on the same team. After reading the scenario carefully, discuss your points of view and whatever is agreed upon will determine what your next scenario is.
Scenario 5
After spending the night in the sporting goods store, you make it back to the house and decide it would be better to set up base in a location that can be better secured. Places discussed are the Court House with the attached jail (three stories), the vacant, former
National Guard Armory (one story), and a large Greek Revival mansion next to a church (also three stories). The Court House, while having several large floor to ceiling windows in the front, seems to be fairly secure due to the fact that the foundation is quite tall and there are no way for the zombies to get through the windows. There are two entrances/exits. One in front and one in back (this is attached to the jail). The vacant Armory has a loading dock in the back, and three entrances besides, two on the sides and one in front. All the windows have bars except the front. The Mansion has four floor to ceiling windows on the large front porch and two entrances/exits, the front door and one in back, which leads to a large yard area (privacy fence) with a pond, and guest quarters in the carriage house. The fence has a double gate (locked) that opens to the church side. The house sits upon a tall foundation, so other than the large windows in front, the house is inaccessible to zombies, except for the front and back door. What will you do? Choose carefully.
