    Thunderstorms...

    I've loved thunderstorms as a child. I'll never forget the faint memory I have of watching a storm as a four-year-old out the window. That was my first memory of watching a thunderstorm, and since then I've loved them. I'm not really sure why it is that they interest me so much...

    When I Was Little

    When I was little I said God must be bowling during one particular loud thunderstorm. I was beaten quite severely by my mother (who didn't have a religious bone in her body) for my exuberant outburst. But that beating did nothing to quell my excitement whenever a thunderstorm...

    I Use to Be Terrified of Them....til Tami's Mom

    Tami's mom told me a story so that I wouldn't be scared anymore. Now, I watch them from my front windows and smile. I thank her for that, no matter what happened with her kids and needing to blame me, I will always be thankful for her taking away that one fear. Here's the story...

    We Don't Get Many Thunderstorms In Hawaii

    I miss them...Nebraska had great ones...but, they always had an element of danger to them...you just never knew if a tornado was going to fall out of the sky...but, once I had checked the weather & gotten the all clear, it was great to listen to the rumbling across the plains...

    Little Gifts

    The storm is now far enough off that I can stand safely at the edge of the freshly drenched cornfield.  Night, thick with the heady aroma of living greenness surrounds me, engulfs me and I am transported.  In the distance, lightning boils...

    Mother Nature Rules

    Thunderstorms are awesome! I too sit outside and watch the display. It reminds me of the power of the ocean. I have even watched while tornadoes start to form, with the clouds going round and round. It fascinates me.

    A Spectacular Lightening Storm

    My uncle lives in America so I see him very rarely when he comes here to visit.  About 7 years ago when he was here there was a spectacular lightening storm.  I think we are both slightly insane as we went out and sat in the middle of the road just absorbing the amazing...

    Used to Sit and Watch

    Awaiting Spring

    I want to lay among the tousled crisp white linens as dawn breaks free of night.  A warm breeze washing over my languid body.  I inhale deeply the sweetness of the early dawn as it wafts through my window on the wings of the gentle breeze.  Somewhere in the...

    One of the benefits of living in Florida.

    The storms are powerful and aggressive, building the smell of ozone and the tingle of electricity in the humid air.

    Summer Storm

    When I was in my late teens I remember a particularly brilliant summer storm where the sky went a strange mustard yellow and I just stood in the garden and got soaked; it felt amazing.

    Truly Beautiful

    Even though most people I  know, are terrified of thunderstorms I find them extremely beautiful and a true wonder.  Especially when I am inside the house next to the window drinking something warm and it is during the day.  It just feels so precious and magical.

    Yep.

    Thunderstorms are awesome.  So primal and powerful and beautiful.  Any sort of storm, really.  I love rainstorms too.  Or the combination.  Sometimes I wish I were a thunderstorm.

    Last Night

    When I went to bed last night, it was raining steady. Not a downpour but a nice rain. I had the windows open so I could hear the pitter patter - a sound I enjoy immensely. As per habit, I read on my current novel until getting too sleepy, then drifted off. Somewhere around 2 a.m...

    I Miss Them

    When I lived in Florida I'd be treated to a good thunderstorm quite often. But here in southern California, it's a pretty rare thing. Maybe once a year I'll get a really good rain storm with a couple streaks of lightning. I've only gotten to enjoy a real thunderstorm once in my 6...
