Away From My Building

I tend to hole up in my apartment for days at a time, especially when I'm unemployed, like I am now. My complex is a single, three-story brick building facing a local highway.

This past autumn, there was a violent storm, complete with tornado warnings. I lost power for a few hours, but this never phases me. I have battery-powered backups and I'm underground anyway, just lie in bed and read.

The following day I went for a walk, and saw a large branch missing from one of the trees between the building and the highway. One end of the branch lay across the sidewalk on my side of the highway, and I could see the other end across the road. The middle had already been cut up and moved away by the city.
