astronauts taking photos

A student said one of the best things in class today. People were sharing stories they'd been told when they were young, and she recalled being at her grandparents' house during a thunderstorm. It was dark--no power--and it was thundering and the lightning was flashing, and all the kids were scared, and her grandfather said about the lightning, "Don't be scared--it's just the astronauts taking pictures."

The lightning flashes were the flashes from the astronauts' cameras.

Isn't that the best?

When my daughter was small we ran across an Asian picture book that said thunder and lightning are dragons bowling in the clouds... that gave her comfort for a long time!

I've heard it told as giants bowling, but never dragons! Asian dragons, with their dramatic whiskers and expressive eyes, bowling. Fun :-)
