I Love a Good Storm

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Never Again

    I'm in awe of storms, they can be so powerful.  I'm grateful  I've never lost my home or town from one.  But with that being said, here's my favorite storm of all storms.  My husband, myself, and our 2 young daughters loved camping ...

    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...

    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...

    On how I feel. When I angry or upset, it feels good during a storm. To see nature echo the chaos that is in my heart. To see the flash of lightning and hear the explosive sound of the thunder as the wind picks up and threatens to blow everything away... Then, there is the other...

    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...

    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.

    Still Love A Good Storm.

    As an only child on a large isolated farm with alcoholic parents, I liked to escape the abuse by climbing to the top of the highest trees on the cliff that overlooked the river many, many feet below. As the storms approached the wind began to blow, I would hold on for my life as...

    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...

    So I just had to post about it! It just started suddenly, a big downpour... so I opened the windows to let in the cool air, and I immediately felt more alive, more fortunate, less bothered and more blessed. Rain just seems to wash away worries, resetting us closer to a natural...

    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.

    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...

    Storms Remind Me Of Happier Times.

    I used to round up my younger sister and brother and play rainy day games. They had such a blast! When we got older we would sit out on the porch if we could and smoke cigarettes and talk about life. Now when it storms out I feel calm. Love that familiar feeling.

    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.

    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...

    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...
