So there I was, making myself a little something for lunch after arriving home from work. We live just up the street from an elementary school and can regularly hear the low-level buzz of the playground during recess. Just at that moment, there was a clap of thunder – not a low rumble, and not a wicked crack, but something right down the middle – and the schoolyard erupted in collective terror. Screams from the school, and laughter from our house – just because it was so spontaneous (not because screaming children are funny.)
Soon after, I found this video of a squirrel going through a similar situation … the terror part, not the laughing. Though you may enjoy a good chuckle on this one.
