Chloe and the Storm

Here is installment number 5 for Joe Van Cleave's "Typing Assignments" project based on "It was a dark and stormy night."

This piece was inspired, in part, by my recent acquisition of a Underwood 5 via Craigslist.  The sellers had just bought a camp on Lake Champlain and found this old Underwood in one of the closets.  Alas, the Underwood will not be ready for a typing assignment until I get it cleaned out and tuned up.  I typed this piece on an equally old Remington Portable from the 1920's.  The Remington was the only elite machine at my house and I needed every inch to get this story to fit on one page!
