Thunder and Lightning
The thunder scared my kids. My four-year-old was terrified by the loud booms. Every time we saw lightning, the kids would start counting so they'd know how far away it was. We decided to have a slumber party in our living room so everyone could be "safe."
We also has quite a downpour. We live in an area that tends to be dry so when we get a lot of rain we're happy. Some are even happy when we get a lot of snow, but I wouldn't count myself in that group. I love to see the snow fall, especially at Christmas, but I don't like it at all on the roads and I definitely don't enjoy getting stuck in my driveway. But, I love the rain. I love the smell of it, the feel of it on my face. I love to see how everything greens up after a rainstorm.
Watching this storm also gave me plot ideas for my current work-in-progress. I love when that happens!
