The Storm

Written by

Teresa Dean Smeigh copyright August 2015

The storm that hit the city that year only knocked down one building partially. Ours, but enough that we had to relocate to an area that was even worse than this one. I loved this old building. The mural on the side my friends and I painted to spruce it up a bit.

Now all we can do is walk past and look at it until the day after tomorrow when they bring the building the rest of the way down and build a nice fancy apartment house in it’s spot that will look more in place than our dump.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    Sad story, it’s a shame that the rebuilding in most city areas these days doesn’t care for the original inhabitants. Good take on the prompt.
