    It was a few years ago durring a hurricane. It was a level 3, I was under sea level and we couldn't get the door to close because the waves kept breaking on it. The rain died off a bit and I went outside to let my dog out. It was still raining and there were jelly fish in my yard...

    Myrtle Turtle

    Every year, kind of as a tradition, my family and I and some family friends, always go to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in August. Usually when we go there's always a hurricane about to come so we get all the pre-weather. And I remember my friend Victoria and I were just coming in...

    Joyful

    It was the first summer I was a camp counsellor in upstate New York, and being from Wales I am used to a lot of rain. It hadn't rained for 6 weeks which is good (less bugs) and bad - cos it hadn't rained for 6 weeks. I love being in the rain and going for long walks in it...

    Summer Camp Square Dancing

    We would square dance at the camp I went to... and one summer it was simply pouring down rain.  There was no thunder or lightning, so the director had us out there, dancing through the puddles!  We all laughed ourselves silly, and loved just about every second of it.

    Let's Do It Again!

    I grew up beside six boys... the second youngest was my best friend.  Whenever there was a sun shower he'd be banging at my door telling me it was time. I loved it, we'd dance in the middle of the street and just have so much fun playing!  I'm thinking that next time it rains I...
