"A Storm to Remember"

  I remember Hurricane Floyd that hit last September. Even though I got out of school early, it was horrible to go out into the heavy rain. After I got out of school, I had to go with my mom to get my brother and sister at their school. The rain was pouring down so hard that you couldn't see anything. As my mom drove up the road it was as if it turned into a river. We sat in the car and waited until the rain slowed down to go into my brother and sister's school to get them.

  We all got home safely, but the force of the wind and rain was so strong I thought it would knock me over. My dad came home a while later not wearing any shoes. He said the building he worked at had begun to flood. Even the parking lot had begun to flood.

  It was the worst hurricane I had been through and the flooding scared me. I thought it would never stop raining. After the hurricane was over I was so sick of rain that whenever I hear the sound of it in small storms it drove me crazy. Even though Hurricane Floyd brought a lot of rain causing flooding, I learned a lot from the experience.
