Rerwrites -- Six Sentence Sunday

I'm so far behind posting on my blog. Ugh. I blog in my mind all the time, if that counts. :) Right now I'm in the midst of massive rewrites to my dystopian novella and it's like I have no extra words to spare. I'm using them all in my story. At least I have six sentences to share today. The following is from page 1 of SUN STORM:
I gripped the window blinds, my fingers like burning bands of iron as the premonition flowed through me. My entire body felt on fire from the inside out and I wondered if exhaling hard enough would send flames dancing on my breath. But no, I'd already tried that. The air from my lungs came out as red clouds of smoke instead.
I had a half hour to warn the town to take cover before the storm hit. It was time to sound the alarm.
