To get away for the weekend and have a good time and relax. She said, “Would you like to go with us to Carowinds Barbaree?” I said yes of course! “Make sure you take off from work.” She told me to start saving my money and we will go two weekends from now. We went June 22nd on a hot Saturday morning, around 10:00. My boyfriend Shawn came and got me from my house so we could all ride together.
“Late one night, when we were all in bed, Mrs. O’Leary lit a lantern in the shed. Her cow kicked it over, then winked her eye and said, ‘There’ll be a hot time in the old town tonight!’ (Abbott)” In 1871, a disaster arose in Chicago and reshaped the city permanently: a fire scorched around three square miles of land, leveled thousands of buildings, and stole hundreds of lives (“Chicago Fire of 1871”). Although the effects of this tragedy were harrowing, it actually served as the catalyst which allowed Chicago to become one of America’s largest, most influential cities. How could such a devastating event have such positive effects? A crucial element of Chicago’s history, the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 can be understood by studying the cause of its severity, its impact on the city, and the recovery efforts of the people.
This advanced party for many years consisted of my two cousins, Haley and Max, my uncle Scott, my father David, my sister Whitney and, of course, me. Arriving around 8:00 in the morning after a roughly 45 minute drive from my uncle’s house, we gathered picnic tables arranging them in a u-pattern, cleaned the area of trash and sticks, and awaited the arrival of more family. Most of my family sleeps longer than the morning lasts on the weekends and therefore tend to come closer to lunch time. Once people begin to show up and the tables fill up with various foods and treats the picnic begins! Then, after eating, we gather a crew and hike up the East bluff.

He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness. He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” shows that Shaun believes Chris had no common sense in his doing for leaving society for the wild. I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills.
The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 was one of the greatest catastrophes in the history of the United States history. The holocaust burned from Sunday, October 8, to early Tuesday, October 10, 1871. Within hours the great city of Chicago was destroyed. Before the fire broke out on Sunday night, October 8, there had been a drought causing everything to be dry and extremely flammable. The city of Chicago was so flammable because almost the entire city was made out of wood.
In addition, over 11,000 residents lost power because of the strong winds downing powerlines and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport canceled over 40 flights, with others being delayed an average of 20 minutes. Strong winds are expected to continue through today and temperatures are expected to only be in the 40s, but feel like 30s because of the wind chill. Weather System heading for New England As of Friday the storm system will be dissipating, but will still be carrying enough punch to cause high winds with gusts of up to 60 mph and dump several inches of wet snow in the Lake Superior area. Snow is expected with flurries and lowered visibility throughout a large swath of the Northern states and lower Great Lakes region. The National Weather Service continues to watch the storm closely and assess and damage caused.
For example, the man ignored the recommendation about traveling alone, because he underestimated the temperature. Not only did the man miscalculate the cold, he did not follow his instincts whilst the dog did, which could have potentially saved the man’s life. Furthermore, the unnamed man used his experience when he built the fire under a tree, which failed, instead of using his instincts to build the fire in a more clear vicinity. The man’s contrary debate between his judgment versus instincts is the primary reason the man did not survive the brutal subzero Yukon
I stepped off of the minuscule plane at about 6:00 pm, and I quickly waited in the frigid cold for my bags to be unloaded. I'd been begging my mom for a trip to Lake Clark in Port Alsworth, Alaska ever since 4 years ago when she told me the story how she read about the parks establishment on December 2nd, 1980 when she was only 10 years old. She told me about the history of the Athabascan people who had made Lake Clark their home so many years ago. My mother also told me about the icy flowing waters and the diverse group of animals who make Lake Clark their home. I've been looking forward to coming to this beauty for the past 3 months ever since my mom had finally agreed to let me go.
Health risks spanned from the horrendous environment. The origin of the apocalypse is unknown, but the father did hear concussions then identifies a “dull rose glow” (52) one morning that altered the country from then on. The land was uninhabited, the trees were all dead, and ash flew all over creating a grey murk (4). The ash that fluttered around was a major hindrance for the man and his son. They had to wear masks to cover their face so they would not inhale the murk, but the father still seemed to have a reoccurring respiratory problem.
In sixteenth February, 1983, a massive bushfire which we now know as Ash Wednesday had started. It didn’t kill as many people as the Black Saturday Bushfire did, but it did destroy 3000 houses. History repeated itself and the government was not prepared for it. The government knew that, bushfires
Leaving Volksheim, Germany in the spring of 1837, Jacob Bretz and his wife Barbara along with their five sons and nephew began a journey to the United States. Boarding a French clipper ship, the Bretz family was about ready to undertake a huge and stormy adventure. (Emmert 419) Eventually, over the span of 75 days, the family arrived in New York City (Weber and Sonderman 2). The family’s stay in the Big Apple did not last very long, as they decided moved to Pittsburgh. The Bretz’s next excursion consisted of riding on a flatboat down the Ohio River until they finally reached the town of Troy, Indiana.
During the War of 1812, the British attacked the heart of our nation, Washington D.C. They were frustrated from the burning of their federal buildings in York, Canada, which is present day Toronto ,so they thought burning down the capitol was the best revenge. During the three days they were in the city, they set fire to most of it causing the majority of the small population to flee. When the citizens started to return, they found their homes and lives destroyed. The destructive actions from the British were brutal and set us up for a long road to recovering the nation’s capitol.
