Toad's wild ride

At least that's what it felt like. First the clouds loomed in great long waves, then the wind gave my car a shove, the sky went dark and gusts of rain shattered against the windscreen. At times the rain battered down so furiously that I couldn't see the road; with an occasional Crack! of a hailstone joining the fun.

What could I do with my evening once safely home? Watch The Day After Tomorrow of course! The storm raging outside created the perfect backdrop to the movie. I don't like watching it in the winter because it convinces me that I'm colder than I am and I certainly don't need tempting to turn up the heat!

That made me laugh! My 8 year old loves disaster movies and in a situation of heavy rain, flood or snow The day After Tomorrow is just the film!!!

I love to be curled up inside watching a storm but I have to admit that I don't like being in a car in them...however I don't mind walking in them!!
