Just continuing the 100 words a day project I mentioned yesterday. Today’s topic is lightning.
The game was forty-five minutes away and by the time we reached the field the sky was filled with ominous and angry clouds. Inevitably the rain came pouring down in thick sheets and we sat in the car, waiting for it to pass. I was terrified of the rumbling thunder and bolts of lightning striking the wide open soccer field. He said, “Don’t worry. We are safe because the car is grounded by the tires.” Relief washed over me and I was finally able to hear the soothing sounds of the rain instead of the booming panic in my heart.
