No one told me there were railroad tracks across the street
from Dolly's house. Granny heard a train in the middle of the
night. She knew it would scare me if I woke up. I had a fever,
so I was sleeping with her. Pretty soon my head came up.
"Hmm?" I said.
"It's a train," she said.
I remembered Mom had said that tornadoes sounded like
trains. "Are you sure?" I said.
