The day after our very rainy day, the sky looked like this.
Only one little cotton-ball cloud in a deep blue sky. The sky seemed bigger and more open without the blanket of rain clouds.
We saw our shadows, which were not there the day before. The water had dried, and the ground felt smooth and cold.
We noted that it was quieter outside, and breezy, and we could hear the wind chimes, but the birds were silent.
Our rain collecting yielded almost a full cup, and we watched how the water sparkled in the sun. We talked about how the water was like our prism, and when we put a sheet of paper under the jar, we could see rainbow colors and light in the shadow.
