The Tsunami on the Lake
It was a beautiful, clear sky Tuesday in good ole rural North Carolina when everything started falling apart, quite literally.

They were examining their trailer’s shredded wheel, and they had no idea what to do since they had no spare tire. As a result, they sheepishly called the gray-haired man’s grandfather to come rescue them. A little while later the two men were rescued, and they had arrived at their destination.

After the young men took a short break to organize themselves and relax, they began to prepare their boat for an all-day fishing trip. Once they had double and triple checked all their gear, they thought they were ready and headed off, oblivious to the nightmare in the sky slowly coming right for them.

Eventually, the storm clouds were right over them, and that was when the ocean dropped out of the sky. The two men were terrified out of their minds, they had never dealt with anything close to this so-called storm. They didn’t even bother...
