Small Comforts for the Approaching Night

A zombified John McCain.

It’s hotter in here, now that all the vents have been boarded up. Of course, we weren’t going to waste the generators on AC, but it only adds to the sense of claustrophobia. More politically themed images are floating around now among the survivors. Anything to distract our attention from the horror that surround us, I suppose.

We also appreciate the comments that are coming in… it’s good to know others have found refuge. Keep ’em coming!

Aside from the pervasive undead horror across the globe, folks are now reporting more strange lights in the sky: Sylvan published a short, cryptic message about the sky, but we don’t even have a way to see the sky here. Can anyone verify this?

The affected are also showing evidence of language comprehension, according to Amy. Kelly also sees evidence of coordinated undead behavior in her neighborhood.

Finally, a lot of detailed reports are showing up over on the LiveJournal Community “Blog Like it’s the End of the World“. Seems appropriate, don’t you think? I’ll run through them shortly to try to see what’s going on… you know, besides the dead walking among us.

    I’ve seen the sky. Don’t look up. That only feeds it. If you want to get out of this alive, don’t look up. Too late for me.
