The Weather Tree

image of the day

 

Down in the town, streets became abandoned as people scuttled into their houses to escape the sudden downpour. Those left stranded took shelter under their umbrellas, or those without darted to find cover in shop doorways. Many ‘tut-tutted’ as they went, glancing up at the sky and frowning. It did seem to have rained a lot recently!

The weather in this particular town had always been strange. The town’s inhabitants would often debate the current weather over their breakfasts, jokingly asking “wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone could control the weather?” That was, of course, a ridiculous thing to say. No-one could control the weather, could they?!

Can you continue the story of the Weather Tree?
