On an afternoon in July, the hot day suddenly changes dramatically. Dark clouds start to race across the sky. The air becomes humid and sticky. Suddenly all the birds stop their songs and fly for shelter. The rain begins to fall, pitter-patter. A streak of lighting flashes across the now darkened sky, making it light up in short burst. Two seconds later, a loud crash of thunder rocks the entire house. Finally, the hot spell is over.
