In the beginning of the episode, a small storm cloud gets separated from his parents while SpongeBob is watching Gale Doppler announce the weather. He sees that it is raining outside and asks himself why it is raining if Gale Doppler said it would be sunny skies. The rain turns out to be from the baby storm cloud, so SpongeBob decides to take him under his wing. He names the cloud Drizzle and the two start doing many activities together.
One day, he ties Drizzle onto a fence and tells him he cannot go inside the house until he is housebroken, due to Gary not being fond of him. While he brings him his food, the cloud escapes and starts causing havoc on Bikini Bottom. Gale Doppler notices this and tries to suck up Drizzle so his prediction about the weather can stay true.
SpongeBob goes looking for Drizzle and eventually finds him. He thanks Gale Doppler for finding him, but he says he needs to suck up the cloud, as it is a danger to the public, so the two use reef blowers to get Drizzle. SpongeBob has a kid handle the reef blower, allowing him to grab the cloud. While he is escaping, Drizzle gets pulled in by Gale Doppler using a large reef blower attached to a construction machine.
He begs him to let go of Drizzle, while crying out tears that make Drizzle bigger. The skies turn grey and Drizzle goes inside Gale Doppler's body, turning him into a storm cloud. He likes this as first, but realizes the damages caused to him and wants to go back to normal. He eventually hits the parent clouds of Drizzle, who make him come out of Gale. He asks about the clouds, but they blow him into the dehumidifier he was going to use on Drizzle and explodes. The cloud family leaves, but Drizzle gives off a smaller cloud for SpongeBob to keep, as the episode ends.
