A flash of lightning lit the sky, followed by loud thunder. The sky was dark. Although it was midday, it looked very gloomy. Then, it started raining heavily. The rain continued for an hour. There were puddles of water everywhere. The drain behind the bus stop was overflowing with rainwater and looked ominous. The water on the road flowed swiftly.
After a while, the heavy rain turned into a drizzle. People walked around with umbrellas. It looked like a sea of colourful umbrellas. A few ladies were walking very slowly so as not to get splashed by passing cars. A few children were having the time of their lives playing in the puddles of water. They did not seem to mind that their socks and shoes were thoroughly wet.
