I woke with excitement because it was the first day of school, but not if the violent storm was still going. I couldn’t hear Mum or Dad so I looked out onto the street of my country home and trees had fallen down. Then out of nowhere my room lit up with a bright light, it was the lighting. “BANG,” went the thunder. I jumped. Then my Mum and Dad’s bedroom door opened. I closed the blinds and jumped back into bed. They came in and sat down and said that there was not any school today.
