Wordless Wednesday: Stormy Morning

When we woke up today it was raining just a bit.  When we walked out the door for school it was drizzling just a little.  The kids begged to walk, so I figured, what's a little rain.
Umm, I was wrong.  This was the scene outside school as kids were walking in.

It's blurry because it was starting to pour out and I was using my phone's camera.  It's almost pitch black outside.  It looked like an early April morning at 5 a.m. or 8 p.m.  It freaked the kids out just a bit.

I took this on the walk back.  It was really eerie.  I got home just before all hell broke loose.  The wind whipped up, more thunder, lots of lightning and the flood gates poured open.

Taken from my front porch.  You can't see anything.  The rain was torrential and hitting my camera lens.

***Yes, I know this isn''t totally wordless, but I can't help but set up the story of the pictures and caption each.

The storms woke us up at 1 AM.

We needed the rain so badly I was happy. I wanted to stay awake ans listen, because rain and storms of any kind have been scarce here.

I was too damn tired.
