    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.

    We were all sitting outside having a lovely BBQ,

    and the skies just opened up and it started pouring. We all ran inside into the sunroom. It has started thundering and lightening, and it lovely to watch.

    I was a graduate student living in a friend's

    guest house. It was a single room with a kitchenette, a bed, and a desk. Curling stairs led to a small bathroom and storage space upstairs. Importantly for this story ceiling high windows were on all four walls. One night the most incredible thunderstorm happened. A friend...

    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...

    Meeting a Storm On the Road.

    We took the back roads to the River this weekend.  As soon as we started climbing up from the flat country into the high ridges that precedes the river bluffs we could not help but notice the thunder heads spread across the abundant sky.  Two huge...

    There's nothing better

    than a good old thunderstorm. Curling up with a blanket and watching a movie while listening to pattering rain and thunder clashing. It's so cozy!

    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...

    Pitter Patter

    There is soft rain falling right now.  I can here the splish splash of rain drops hitting the window.  The gentle roll of thunder in the distance puts my soul at ease.  We are in the path of a strong storm with high winds, but for now this is the calm before the...

    This afternoon, we had one of those warm summer

    rains and I stood there for a while and just let it fall all around me. I've had this experience dozens of times. I think I'll go for a few dozen more in this lifetime.

    A Spectacular Lightening Storm

    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...

    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...

    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.

    As an insomniac, thunderstorms are the only

    non-drug thing that can help me sleep... I have no idea why, and recordings don't work....it's very strange but when it's cold out and the rain splashes against my windows, it's like...taking Benadryl.

    the quiet build up, then a distant rumble,

    few drops of rain hinting at the deluge to come... then a flash and the heavens open. Rumbles get louder rain heavier, The smell of rain on asphalt, freshly ionised ground, and if lucky a rainbow at the end

    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.
