'Preparedness' by Janet Olearski

If she had not prepared for the storm, the consequences would have been disastrous… deckchairs blown into nearby fields, tiles swept from the porch roof, garden furniture splintered into pieces of wood ready for the next bonfire, plant pots smashed, flowers butchered. Her life disrupted. A loss of order.

So, she did prepare for the storm, folding the deckchairs, securing tiles, shifting and stacking garden furniture, putting pots and flowers in places of safety.

But, since the storm never came, she moved everything back. Though for the life of her, where it all originally went, she could scarce remember.
