The deluge began sometime during the night, and hasn’t let up. It’s predicted to stay the same, with the occasional addition of “wintry mix”, for the next 10 days, which is as far ahead as I can check the forecast online.
Jet doesn’t mind. We’ve had multiple conversations just like this:
Jet (eyes wide, with sharp intake of breath): “Mommy! What is dat?”
Me: “I don’t know, Jet. What is it?”
Jet: “Dat’s TUN-DER!”
*cue more thunder*
Jet: “LOOK, Mommy, LOOK! MORE TUN-DER!”
Me: “Yes, Jet. More tunder.”
Lather, rinse, repeat.
