Story Summary

An old man who lived alone with his goat herd claimed that the goats could tell him when things were about to happen. Thinking him crazy the towns people never listened until the day the goats told the old man the worst storm in history was coming. Reticent at first, the towns people took shelter when the wind stirred and the sky darkened.
