It's Day 2 of no school here because of excessive rain. It rained a lot in Sri Lanka but not this hard or for this long. It's essentially been 3 days of rain, lightning, and thunder. One set of thunder rattled the front door hard. We've never seen lightning, thunder, or rain like this before.
Apparently, a hurricane is similar to this (plus low clouds) but we haven't see very strong winds.
Some of the students say this is the perfect weather to cuddle up in a blanket to stay warm. It's in the 20s and I'm wearing nothing but shorts. It's all about what you're used to...:)
