320 words short essay on A Rainy Day for kids. This year the summer season was unduly long and extremely hot. It was July and the schools had reopened. The scorching sun and the extreme heat made life miserable. Going to the school, studying in the class or playing on the grounds all seemed to be a punishment.
One morning, clouds gathered in the sky. Thunder rolled. Suddenly it started raining. There was a downpour for a short while but soon it turned into a steady rain. It was time for school. So, we took our umbrellas and set off.
It was refreshing to go out in the cool air. Everyone and everything looked fresh. The trees were a vivid green. The sound of falling rain was pleasing to the ears. No one minded the inconvenience of wet umbrellas, soaking shoes and wet clothes.

The plight of bus travelers was of course pitiable. Buses were late and overcrowded. It may be quite pleasant to take a brisk walk in the rain, but nobody likes standing. In the queue in wet clothes, with the cold drops from other persons’ umbrellas dripping down one’s back.
The street urchins were having a great time playing. In the streets, floating boats on the sides of the roads where water was flowing fast. I wished I could join them.
In the class, very few students were attentive. Almost everybody was looking at the rain every now and then. Primary class children were playing with boats in the centre court, where water had gathered making it look like a pool.
Ankle-deep water had collected near our school gate and on the main road. The municipality had been caught napping. The drainage system was choked. All low lying areas had knee-deep water. Even cars and buses were stranded at many places.
It is exhilarating to watch pouring rain and to run about in it. But soon I was happy to return home and change into dry clothes.
