    Rain Relaxes, Thunder Excites

    When it rains I like the way my the skin on my face softens and my eyes relax in the softer light. If the wind gets up I love the coldness on the tip of my nose and if my ears get really cold I love that tingle of getting warmed again when I get back home...

    There is nothing like the smell of wet earth

    after a storm. The feeling of the rain on your skin. The smell of it on your arms. There is nothing like the rainbow that peeks out after the rain or the sound of violent rain as you are cuddled in your bed with a good book . There is nothing like hugging someone close as you...

    Most people don't like thunderstorms,

    but I can feel calm during one, the peace it gives me. It takes me away from the stressful was of life.

    There is something about the loud boom

    and then a beautiful flash of light. It amazes me that something so beautiful can be so deadly. That's what I love about it.

    Thunder Roars

    I love the rain as it falls.. The feeling of it cold on my skin, stinging as it beats down.. The sound of the splashing puddles, the dripping and gushing as it rolls off the roof.. I love the sound in the clouds.. The rumble and rolling.. The menacing grey as it crowds the sky...

    but I also love the sound of the wind. It calms me and makes me feel safe.

    There are few things better in life then a day

    off of work when it is storming outside. Being from the midwest this happens every now and then. Obviously I wouldnt want it all the time but to have a day of rest without feeling I am wasting away a nice day is amazing!

    The heat was building

    and you could sense the turbulence in the air along the Lake Michigan shoreline and then it just erupted -- massive lightning strikes, followed by round after round of crashing thunder and torrential rain. Fun to watch from my large condo windows. Glad I wasn't caught outside...

    I especially love going outside

    and just standing in the rain. It helps calm me and melt away my problems. I always feel so much 'lighter' after standing out in the rain for a while.

    I´ve always heard that rain is related to sad

    things but it is not what I think at all. What I really enjoy about atmospheric phenomenons is the rain. I grew up in a little town, in the jungle, where the rain was a very big deal. It wasn´t just cats and dogs, it was more like elephants and whales :). A very stormy place...

    You are rain to me. I only need to think of

    you, and there I hear your lullaby. I only need to dream of you, and there I find your peace. You are always there, and have always been there. Soft, steady, serene. Soothing me, cradling me; Singing me to sleep.

    My grandparents used to live in Las Cruces,

    New Mexico near the Organ Mountains. They had a picnic table in the back yard where my mother and I would sit. There would be thunderstorms on the other side of the mountains and they would stay there because of the mountains. Since there was barely any light pollution, we could...

    Falling asleep to a thunderstorm has to be the

    greatest thing ever. As long as it doesn't start tearing apart houses, it can rain and storm as hard as it wants!

    It is finally Monsoon season.

    It is the only thing that makes these scorching summers worth it. A Thunderstorm rolled in tonight. I sat in the clearing in my apartment complex and enjoyed the rain and light show. I heard the longest continuous clap of thunder I have ever heard. The rain was really unsure...

    Kinetic Vs Potential Energy

    The physics of a Thunderstorm. When the sky gets dark and the wind has that sharp edge. I go crazy. I want to run outside and be a part of the insanity. No matter where I am or what I'm doing, I want to feel it all around me. I love the rain pouring down drenching me and...

    I just love the way it makes me feel.

    To me it's the perfect time to get some hot coco, grab a blanket, and find a good movie to watch. I like the sound of thunder and I enjoy glancing at the rain as it splatters against my window, as I relax for a nice change.

    Nature has incredible power

    and at least where I live, the best way to witness that power is in a thunderstorm. Lightning putting on a show while thunder fills your senses. You don't just hear thunder, you feel it. You don't just see lightning, you sense it a millisecond before you see it. Wind...

    I love wild rain, thunder and lightning. I get excited when it gets really windy and dark and everyone else is freaking out. I love the rain too. Especially in the summer because of the way it makes the earth smell. I seem to be the only person I know who feels this way. Well...
