    It's now 04:35 am BST.

    And I've just spent the last hour trying to clear the water from the back porch! We've had rolling storms all night. Which is unusual. Rain, hail. Even a few minutes of sleet! Being outside was kind of invigorating with all this going on. But the poor dog didn't know what to do...

    I Am Very Afraid Too!

    I can't stand thunderstorms either.  It is the only time when I don't feel preppy:-)  I usually go and hide in my closet with my little dog who is just as afraid as I am.  I think I passed on my fear to him because he didn't used to be afraid. Luckily I have a...

    Right now there's a thunderstorm

    and the power went out.... Thank god for data, but I'm home alone and I'm honestly scared. I could just go to sleep but I feel not safe ? I don't know just this feeling is unsettling

    Great I know that I won't be falling asleep

    anytime soon. I am terrified of lightning and thunderstorms. Why tonight when I have no one to cuddle up to when I am afraid of something.

    Just had one;-; loud thunder

    but sheet lighting so it wasn't that bad. It's around 3:35am now and it's still not finished.-. Had to sit under my covers for a bit and play my music through earphones but the thunder was to loud.

    The Big One.

    My fingers clenched on the stearing wheel of my car. My wife yelled: We have to go back right now. She didn't get an argument with me. I couldn't believe what I saw. And somehow, I doubted if we would make it through... Sunday, July 28th, 2013. 17:00 h, CET The town of...

    It Is The Lighting I Don't Like

    Yes it is the lighting I don't like the most you never know what is going to be hit by it. Rain is good we need it for thing to grow, but I could do without the lighting. And it scares my dog too ha ha.

    I Don'T Mind The Rain

    ...but I hate thunderstorms with a passion. Whenever it gets cloudy out, even if I have all the lights on, my apartment is dim. When we get the severe storms, complete with bolts of lightening and rolls of thunder, it's even worse. In three years, I have seen huge bolts of...

    only partly due to the weather

    but also because my 3 youngest climb into bed with me when they happen during the middle the night. not normal behavior for a 10 year old boy i know but he clearly remebers april 2011 and the tornadoes that struck our area and hes deathly afraid of storms since.

    It'S Bad Enough

    Spring is supposed to be nice...and pretty...and flowery...and warm... But you gotta pay a price,and that price is thunderstorms. Flashes of light zipping down the next-door gangway; the power dimming, then springing back again... The power in the entire apartment building...

    Scared

    I don't care that I'm 26.. I'm terrified of thunderstorms or any kind of really bad weather. And its thundering right now... I'm hugging my pillows. I hate being awake before they start it means I won't be able to go to sleep.

    Ms. Terrified

    I hate thunderstorms with a passion. My boyfriend laughs at me because it is the only time I shut up. I usually hide under a blanket and try to cover my ears. I am such a punk when it comes to thunderstorms.

    It's the Lightning & Thunder

    The reason I hate thunderstorms is because of the Lightning and thunder, there cannot be anything good about it. The Lightning stikes can kill and start fires and the thunder is always loud. I would like the thunderstorms if it wasn't for the loud thunder and lighting stikes.

    I Just Realized...

    Even as a 26-year-old, I am very uncomfortable with thunderstorms. I just had one very early this morning around 5am or so. It was so strong that my window was flashing with lights very often between seconds. I had never seen anything like that before. It was almost as if the...
