It was a dark and stormy night.

Now … I realize that this is the most ridiculed and overused opening lines in literary history. But, here’s the challenge. To accurately relay my story … I have to tell you it was a dark and stormy night. This fact was extremely relevant because that night was a microcosm of the way my life had been recently … dark and stormy.

Ominous thunder rolled through our little normally quite valley like a freight train headed to Hades. I remembered when my mother used to tell me … “Don’t be afraid Bill … that thunder is just the Angels in Heaven bowling.”

Well, the angels were having a tournament that night! And every angel in heaven must have bowled a 300! It was only fitting that with each burst of thunder there was a simultaneous lightning “strike.”

The infamous “They” say that when the thunder and lightning happen at the same time it means that you are right in the middle of the storm. Just like my life. Right in the middle of a storm!

The rain drops that night were bigger than I had ever seen and they seemed to be blowing sideways. The storm just never seemed to let up.

The howling winds were strong enough to make the windows rattle and sometimes the entire house seemed to “groan.” I groaned with it. I felt like I was trapped in a “B” movie and that any minute some Transylvanian blood sucker would crash through the window.

The eerie glow of the candle light seemed to shadow box with the reflections of the tree limbs outside bending and bowing to the mercy of the storm. Conflict. Light verses darkness. My life story.
