Cloudbusting


Yesterday we had a huge storm with lots of lightening. I think thunderstorms are really exciting, so I go to the window and watch them. I keep counting the seconds between the lightning and thunder.

Mr Teacher told me that the storm is a mile away for each second between the thunder and lightning. That's how you can tell how far away a storm is. When you see the lightning at the same time as you hear the thunder, the storm is right over your head.

Quickos loves lightning.
