in the end, it was just useless worrying.
the (rain) storm that was supposed to knock out our power,
trap us in our homes
and flood our streets
turned out to be not much more than a day of heavy rain.
and the (attitude) storm that was supposed to have my children knocking each other out,
trapping one another in head locks
causing their mother's eyes to flood with tears,
turned out to be not much more than a day of heavy bickering.
guess you can't always depend on the forecast.
