In the wee hours of the morning, I heard thunder and pulled the covers up tighter. Doug went to check for flooding and/or tree damage. Evan crawled in our bed for snugglies. When we all got out of bed a few hours later, we learned the noise was something worse than any of us imagined. The children listened as adults discussed it at the bus stop. Then, just like the adults, they tried to make sense of it. They just did it their own way.
