We noticed that the sky was getting dark just as we finished eating dinner, so we moved to the porch swing to enjoy the storm together.
I told the Merry Trio about how when my mother was a little girl, she would run to her grandmother's house down the block when a storm was brewing, so that they could sit together on their wrap-around porch and eat a dish of ice cream during thunder and lightening storms. The children loved hearing that.
The rain came down furiously for just a few minutes before the sun started peeking through the clouds again. When the thunder stopped we hopped off the porch and were so happy to find a double rainbow arching over the church. It was so lovely!
