Thunder boomed and lightning flashed.

Rain

Thunder boomed, and lightning flashed. The thunder roared louder. Wind rattled the windows and rain pounded the tin roof.  A
streak of lightning cracked a nearby oak, shattering it into splinters.  Michael shut the door and moved away from windows. The storm passed quickly and a light rain continued to fall. (Excerpt from my novel, Call of the Cadron.)    c Copyright, 2012, Freeda Baker Nichols
