Have you ever heard anyone say: "There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing".

This means that as long as you have appropriate clothes on, all types of weather can be fun - yes, even rain!

This dog has the right idea!

A very rainy day!

Imagine it is a very, very rainy day but you want to go for a walk.

Draw a picture of yourself. Carefully cut out the clothes below that you think would help to keep you nice and dry!

Stick them onto yourself to make a collage of the perfect rainy day outfit.

"Lightning never strikes the same place twice" … Or does it?!

This means that if something REALLY good or bad happens, it's unlikely to happen you again - because it is so rare that lightning would hit the exact same spot a second time.

The odds of getting struck by lightning are about 500,000 to 1. But a man in the US called Roy Cleveland Sullivan was recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the person struck by lightning more recorded times than any other human being. He worked as a park ranger in Virginia.

Guess how many times he was struck? SEVEN TIMES! He survived every time to tell the tale. For this, he got the nickname Human Lightning Rod.
