Drawing notes:

There are three clouds across the page. The clouds in rows 1 and 2 are various rain clouds that may or may not drop rain on your head. The cloud in rows 4 thru 11 in cells 1 thru 9 is the storm cloud with lightning. This is the one you hide from on a rainy day. The last two clouds in row 4 thru 7 are the big white clouds that can sometimes be seen on a sunny day.

Fun facts:

Did you know over 100 types of clouds exist, and they can be grouped into 10 basic types based on their shape and height in the sky.
