Understanding rain

It’s Monsoon season here.  Thunderstorms roll in nearly every day.  I adore thunderstorms.  Not wanting to set a bad example, I no longer sit out watching them roll in until the lightning is overhead, but I do take great care to instill a love of nature and thunderstorms into the boys.  Because the more knowledge you have the more you love it, I have explained several times how rain works.

Which lead Tornado E to this observation:

Tornado E: The water are on the ground is like candy that the clouds drink up until they are full.  Rain is when the clouds are so full of candy they get sick.

Gross, but surprisingly accurate.  But really, it’s really gross when you think about it.
