The Rain Spouts

posted in: South Side Memories | 0

It’s a wonder that I am still here on this earth considering some of the things I did as a child.  On a hot summer day, great, great rain storm.. no lightning.  What did a bunch of us do, I think we were about 5 or 6 years old…we went outside, even put on our bathing suits and went out into the rain.   I think my mom was sleeping, because she worked late at night.  We ran barefoot from one rain spout to another, water streaming out.  It was great, but did I know about the dangers…I guess not.  I asked another friend if she wanted to come out.  Her mom was around and said no.  My friend told me her mother said, beware of lightning…so we went back inside.  But it was fun while it lasted.
