It was Monday morning and dad was getting ready to go to work my brother was in the bath and I was just having a lazy day. It was a very rainy day no thunder or lightning though. Dad went to work in the car. My mum said I could ask a friend to come and play. My mum rung Clair Zia's mum to see whether she could come round. When Zia came the sky got darker and the power went out! I heard thunder but just then, in the middle of the noise we saw lighting we were terrified we hid under my mum's bed until it stopped. When the weather passed we went for a picnic.
