Daniel Tiger and his dad arrive at the tree house to pick up their friends. A big storm is on its way to the Neighborhood and the Tiger house is much safer than the tree. The wind picks up as the sky quickly darkens. Dad Tiger shares the safety plan with Daniel and his nervous friends.

The heavy rain begins to fall just as everyone arrives back at the Tiger house. Watching out the window, Daniel make-believes that he is playing outside in all kinds of weather.

Consulting the safety plan, Daniel and his friends check the emergency kit for various items including a flashlight, a first aid kit, and water.

Following a large clap of thunder, the lights go out and Mom Tiger finds a flashlight in the emergency kit. Together by candle light, everyone enjoys a picnic dinner on the floor as they make shadow puppets on the wall.

Daniel and his friends put on their pajamas as they prepare for a sleepover in Daniel's room and are reassured by their parents that they will be safe from the storm.
