This storyboard does not have a description.
Now that the droplets reached the clouds, they were very tired and thirsty. This process is called condensation. Since clouds are made of water, they drank all that they could to stay "hydrated", which meant that they got bigger and larger. Once they could not hold up their heaviness, Carl told Doris to go to the end of the cloud and fall to the surface. This step of the water cycle is called, Precipitation. This happens when water droplets become heavy and fall to the surface.
As Doris dropped rapidly down to the surface, with Carl not far behind, she noticed that the air got colder as she got closer to the ground. UH OH! They were falling straight into a crack on an icy glacier! As they fell through the chilly crack, it started to get warmer the deeper the droplets got. When they reached the bottom, they went through a tube that was surrounded by soil, which was now groundwater. The tube opened up into a muddy, filthy lake with many wild animals surrounding it.
When the droplets filed into the lake, they noticed that they were in the shallower part of the lake, where an elephant sat, drinking the foggy liquid. As the grand creature kept drinking the closer the droplets got to its trunk. With one last slurp, the two were swallowed and absorbed by the elephant! After the elephant had had its share of the lake water, it left to go deposit its unwanted liquid, in the bushes.
As gross as falling into the prickly bushes, and dropping to the soil, the droplets heard voices down below them. Both of their parents were talking! As they all came together, they exchanged stories. The young droplets found out that both of their parents went to go find a rare artifact called a "bush", and this bush has magical flowers that keep whomever finds it, in one spot, so they do not have to move along with the water cycle. As the parents went along, they took a wrong turn, so they were lost. once they went through evaporation, then condensation, and then precipitation, they reached the bush. But they were supposed to be back before dawn, but again, as you can see, they did not.
As the families finished reuniting, the squirmed their way to the bottom of the soil, and they each took their turn "running off" into their home river. That night, when the Daddy and Mommy Flopper tucked Doris into her water bed, they told her that she was very brave and her scared and shy personality had "evaporated!"
We love you Doris! Have rainy dreams!
