    Wow, that was loud! Good thing thunder can’t hurt you.

    And we’re safe from lightning in here. But just listen to the wind howl! I hope it doesn’t damage any buildings.

    Mom, Dad, after family prayer tonight can we make a blanket fort in the living room and sleep in it?

    Yeah, can we? That’d be fun.

    Later—

    … and, Heavenly Father, please bless us and keep us safe. And bless us that the storm will be over soon.

    What was that?!
