FC: The Storm before Canterbury | By Madeline Jones

1: Dedicated to Eyer Middle School I'll miss you dearly | The Storm before Canterbury | By Madeline Jones

2: "Grandpa, can you tell me a story", Ty says. I say of course. "Did I ever tell you of the time I built the Canterbury Cathedral all the way back in 1070" My grandson answers, "Please tell me"

3: "I was a naive young man when I started the Canterbury Cathedral in England. The style back then was big arches, grand ceilings, flying buttresses, and lots of stained glass. This was called Gothic. A Cathedral had to be grand so as to honor God. The bishop hired me to build a cathedral like no other in Canterbury. It was to honor God like no cathedral ever had. In other words I was expected to make magic.

4: I had only 1000 days from start to finish. First we cleared the land. We didn't have big machinery back then so all that back breaking work was done by hand.

5: After that was done we started building the foundation, and walls, I would sketch the wall designs on the floor and then workers would build them with stones right on the sketches.

6: While they were building the walls I would check on the flying Buttresses(also known as arches) and stained glass, all the glass was depicting Biblical scenes

7: One day as I was leaving I saw a storm brewing. That night it destroyed most of our completed work. We were sunk!

8: We were beginning to worry. We only had 400 days left! | This is how terrible it looked. Dust was everywhere

9: My men were discouraged they didn't think it was possible. I said I'd stay up everyday to finish this cathedral but I'd need some help.

10: This got them moving. From then on it was work, work, work from dawn 'til dusk.

11: Finally it was finished. The men cheered and everybody agreed we had built a beautiful cathedral. The ceilings looked like an opening to heaven and the stained glass and stonewalls supported by the buttresses gleamed.

12: "I love your story Grandpa", says Ty. I say, "Look outside, the rain stopped. Lets go out and build you a tree house." | Ty's Treehouse
