Tears from Heaven
by R. U. Wettyett
It was a year of meteorological contradictions. Drought followed by torrential rains, record snowfall followed by months of scorching heat. The citizens of **Wishaw, PA, a little hamlet between the towns of Panic and Desire, were filled with anxiety, and Ella Vador brought all the trouble up to the surface.
Wishaw was a dot on the map, not even important enough to be included in any census data. Ella, town historian, sole member of the Chamber of Commerce and an inveterate gossip, wanted to put Wishaw ON the map. She just needed something that would get the media's - and the world's - attention.
As luck would have it, a tear in the space-time continuum occurs directly above the town’s abandoned coal mine – and as reporters and EPA and Bureau of Mine Safety officials descend upon Wishaw, the town is brought into the spotlight…with consequences that rock the entire universe.
**These are real towns. A date and I visited them once, and I had him take my photo beside the signs for Panic and Desire (sorry, lost the pics...and the man). In Wishaw, I yelled, "Help me! I'm halfway between panic and desire, and I don't know what to do!"
Maybe this type of behavior is why I was single for so many years.
