I grew up with always loving the sound and sights of thunder and lightning; It made me feel live. I enjoyed it because it was a fascinating aspect of nature we so rarely ever saw or heard. I'd always run up to the nearest window to look for it if I'd heard a rumble or clap and I'd stay there until it had finished. Even to to this day it amazes me.

What do YOU think of it?! Scared? Happy?

I hate it with a passion,

I can remember being in northern France , coming back from the south.
when we got to where we were getting the boat,,, it started, the like of it i had never seen before
AND there was no place to run and hide,, the lightning strikes were so near and so bad

I had to just sit in the car and wait it out, i was so glad when it was over. doh

The most spectacular electric storms i saw were from Cyprus looking out over the mediterranean, they lit up the whole sky for miles, and when a bolt hit the land it was a ferocious explosion. cats meow

He was kinda right to be worried - it's scientific fact that if you can hear thunder, you're technically close enough to be struck by lightning. Though you should be extra worried if your hair starts to stand on end!

I was worried too but being the big sister I did not want to show fear and just told him "lets run home" which was only ten minutes away rather than have my mum drive to get us! But he was too scared and wanted my mum to get us.

There's nothing like sleeping in a cozy warm bed while the storm is raging outside. daydream

I love it. I miss the African electric storms. You could smell the burning in the air, the wind is wild and the rain lashes.
I'd go and sit on the patio and watch it, just magnificent

After all the years I lived outdoors, I wear clothes and use bedding that keeps me warm, even if it rains on me.

It doesn't matter how bad a storm is... as long as I'm under a tarp that's keeping me dry, I sleep through hurricanes.

I never like it when I was child and I don't like it now.

I lost a computer and a big screen tv because of it.even though I have all electronic items in surge protecters they both got hit by a strike of both.

I don’t like it....
uh oh I blame my eldest brother, when I was about 3yrs old and my first memory of Thunder he told me, with each clap, that my neighbors houses were falling down... I was waiting for ours to fall with each clap.... Terrifying for a little one laugh

Same for me.
I grew up in a remote valley on the edge of the old Nyasaland where there were savage storms in the rainy season. Lying in bed, under a mosquito net, hearing the rain hammering down on the tin roof while flashes lit up the room with the simultaneous crash of thunder gave a kid a sense of security.
