One Potato Review
Thrillingly captures the panic which accompanies the arrival of a major weather system, and the unforgettable details of a night spent holing up with your family - with flashlights and candles and dinner on the floor by the fireplace - until it’s passed. Still, this doesn’t stop there: the wreckage left behind in the morning becomes a vehicle - many vehicles really - for racing imaginations. That a massive fallen tree should eventually get carved into lumber and carted away hints at this author’s larger - if unspoken - intentions. Yes, these boys are free to wonder over the potential of future almost-disasters, but one family’s amusement park is very likely to become another family’s shelter.
