Dark and stormy night in Warrendale

Tonight, my friends is the kind of "dark and stormy night" that inspires horror stories. The way lighting flashes, casting shadows that you see out of the corner of your eye - thinking that it was something.

But then, as you turn around to look at it closer, the shadow has disappeared back into the night.

You hear something move and tell yourself that it's just something being blown about by the wind. But then...

Then you realize that it sounds too big to be an ordinary piece of trash. It's moving towards you. You try to figure out what it is, but now it's sound is muffled. Maybe it stopped or is just downed out the persistent gurgle of rain and the sound of thunder.

You tell yourself that it's nothing.

And then - another flash of lightning. Another shadow that moves in the corner of your eye and that sound keeps moving closer...
