    Storms Scare Me

    I was little. We were a family of 6. Dad was driving home from the cottage at the lake. It was raining. There was thunder and lightning. About 10 or 15 minutes from home  the storm was so bad that Mom barked at Dad to pull over and stop. The rain was blinding. The lightning was...

    I'm really only afraid of the thunder that accompanied storms. Especially with its loud and sounds like the sky is cracking.

    That Horrible Day

    When I was a kid there was a terrible thunderstorm just as school was letting out. DO you think the teachers waited for the storm to pass?No. They let us go anyway and I was so afraid to walk home. The sky was a really weird green color and I could see lightning flashing. The...

    They make me anxious.

    The sound of the rain pounding hard on the roof. The flashes of light, followed by the deafening crack that causes the house to shake and the windows to rattle. Every once in a while, the lights will flicker. The howling of the wind would make my dogs bark in fear. I am afraid...

    I Am Afraid Of Thunder Storms

    I am afraid of thunder storms. This fear stems from a childhood experience. When I was six, I had a baby sitter. My parents had to work till 7. On this particular day, it rained. At first, it was simply a drizzle. Then, a loud clasping noise was heard. I was terrified, that I ran...

    It's not so much the storms themselves

    that scare me as the possibility of getting struck by lightning and being badly injured or killed by it. About 20 years ago I was walking across moorland in SW England, and a storm came in from seemingly out of nowhere. A bolt of lightning struck a boggy field about 20-30 feet...

    I have lived through way too many tornadoes in

    the Midwest. The time is now 4:30 and I have been awake since 3:30, waiting this weather mess out. I'm so tired. Why can't I sleep through these like my family does?

    This is gonna sound weird

    but I am scared of thunder and lighting! If I am at home then I would.....go and hide in my bed like a kid 😛 but if so unfortunate that I am not home then I would try to find somewhere indoor that won't let me hear or see the thunderstorm.

    I used to love thunderstorms, looking for the lightning and counting the seconds until the thunder rumbled.  Then I had a nightmare about lightning.  I was lying in a cast iron bed in a big dormitory filled with other beds.  There was a thunderstorm outside, with...
