Rain represents the separation and differences between the races. An example of this would be the children walking to school and being soiled by the muddy waters on the side of the road, when the bus carrying the white children passes them by. The black children are not offered transportation; the white children not only have their own school, but a bus to transport them to school as well.

Storms are used as a symbol in a few different ways. Mr. Morrison is described as having a deep, quiet voice..... like the roll of thunder. Another example would be the fact that Pa and Mr. Morrison were attacked during a storm. Thunder storms symbolize and foreshadow violence.
