    It's the moments before the storm.

    The wind begins to increase, the sky darkens, the clouds build, and you can smell the rain in the atmosphere.

    A Breath Of Fresh Air

    It seems like ages since I was out in one and I miss them.  I guess it's old age that does it.  When I was young, climbing trees and wandering the fields, storms were exhilarating.  Find shelter, sit it out, enjoy the show.  The immense noise. Later the kinds of storms that...

    Rainy Day

    My new favorite rainy day memory. I was showing him my hometown and we went to one of the local state parks. Walking through when it started pouring rain. It was a little ways to the car so we stopped under a picnic shelter for the rain to stop. I say on top of the table he sat...

    God's Fireworks

    The storms that I love are thunder and lightening storms. The electric feeling of anticipation in the air that one feels is as much a part of me as my flesh and my bones. I grew up in a land of summer storms, where the storm on a hot summer night was all one had to cool down...

    I love just sitting by my back door on the hard

    wood floor drawing while it rains, just sitting there sketching to the sounds of rain and taking in the sweet smell of rain. It really is a beautiful scene.

    My favorite are summer thunderstorms- dark

    puffy clouds, electric lightning that cracks and burns up the sky, rolling thunder, winds pummeling the trees. Love it!

    It's Kinda Sad

    Where I live winter is starting to set in and other then snow storms I have to wait at least 4 months for the good storms to come back.  I love a night time storm,  hearing and seeing it come closer.

    The sound alone is enough I make me fall asleep

    instantly but just thinking about how much power that a thunderstorm actually has is just mind boggling. Weird to find myself relaxing and falling asleep when I know that there is enough energy in one lightning bolt to vaporize me.

    Storms make me feel alive,

    thoughts race, body pulsates. The power and beauty of nature itself is mind blowing. I can feel the adrenaline like an invisible force from a storm

    Music to My Soul

    The sound of thunder, the rain hitting the roof and windows, oh it is so peaceful. The exhilaration of thunder and lightening. I love laying in my bed at night just listening to the sounds and watching the lightening flash. It calms me. Strange that such turmoil can give someone...

    I'm from Houston, Texas

    and the mid to late summer season is our rainiest. I use to hate it because it meant I couldn't go out side, but now I find it relaxing.

    Tree Climber

    One of my favorite things to do when it is stormy outside is climb a tree. I know it sounds crazy but the evergreens are all around me and they are great for climbing-- I climb to the very top and just cling to the tree trunk. It is amazing to just shiver in the rain and feel...

    Rolling In

    The most intriguing storm I ever witnessed was while I was vacationing in Key West. We were standing on the dock and watched as this enormous inky black cloud rolled in across the horizon. The air became very still and you could hear the hum of electricity that just hung there. A...

    Thoughts In The Wee Hours During A Power Outage

    This morning I awoke early at the lake house and found myself in the midst of a power outage that encompassed the entire area. The wind that had caused it could still be heard whistling faintly through the firs overhead, yet the house was strangely quiet, with not even the...

    I get a buzz when a good thunderstorm is coming.

    My whole body jangles and I feel that same anticipation I get when I'm undressing a lover. Storms make me horny and I love to run around naked in the rain!

    Summer 2013, the best summer of my life.

    I remember hail relentlessly whipping my face, I was out in the field when the storm caught me. It chased me, it tried to harm. I was running, the mud was leaving marks on my skirt. My heart was filled with love and the storm only accompanied the passion burning in my chest. I...

    That Man Is A Tease...

    ...who? the hot meteorologist who tells me every night that it's going to storm soon. Now he says 'tomorrow". Will tomorrow ever come? I'm so ready to stand out in the rain until I'm soaking wet.

    The sound of thunder,

    and seeing lightning makes me feel excited, the last good storm I saw lasted well over three quarters of an hour and I was just hanging out of my window waiting for the next bang or flash. It made me feel alive.

    Nothing Better Than Sitting On the Porch In a Storm.

    I've loved storms my whole life. My parents had a pretty big porch and we could sit out there during storms. We would sit out there for hours as long as it wasn't blowing a lot (we would get wet if it did). Fear was never something I associated with storms. We never worried about...

    The Mountains Are Beautiful

    Right now i am in bliss. It is raining, one of those days where the clouds are not dark black, rather really white. The rain off in the distance is making the mountain range look hazy, dreamy, and as if it were a line that were hand-drawn to cut the horizon in half. The mountain...

    When those big black clouds build up

    and then rain comes, the lightning seems to bounce off the surrounding peaks. It is truly a sight to behold...and the thunder is deafening.

    I love a storm at night. I think the sound of the rain is beautiful. The best thing is the smell right before it rains. I can go outside and just smell the air and know that it will be raining within the next 10 minutes. It's just a wonderful scent. It's calm. The wind dies...
