I kind of LOVE them. There's just something about a killer storm that soothes my soul. This one woke me up multiple times in the middle of the night and was still going in the morning, there was nothing left to do people, we had to go for a walk in it. Lily was a little hesitant but perked up when I told her she could use my umbrella... aaaaand maybe earn herself a lollipop after lunch - yeah, I'm totally that mom. With one kid leading the way (spotting an insane amount of snails, to her delight) and the other strapped in the pack, we walked, we drank in that cool, rainy morning air and it was beautiful. Rain, rain, keep it coming.
