I Love Rain and Thunderstorms

    One of my favorite favorite things is standing

    outside watching a storm roll in. Everything wakes up, everything's alert. Even the air smells different. I'm like a moth to the flame. :)

    Through The Storm.

    This afternoon I was walking home after running an errand. Waterproof jacket, waterproof boots and some light rain. I was content, stomping through the late afternoon darkness with the sound of raindrops bouncing off my hood.A flash of white and magenta lit up the sky; I smile...

    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...

    The Comfort And The Power

    When I was young, I loved thunderstorms! I would go outside and sit on the porch on our hand-painted bench and just wait for the excitement to begin. While other children and their pets ran indoors with their tails between their legs, I got ready to spend a good hour or so...

    Yesterday my friend and me wanted to take

    advantage of the super hot weather so we decided to go swimming to a river which is like 30 mins walking. When we arrived a massive storm appeared out of nowhere. Loved it! In a few seconds we were soaking wet to the last piece. We walked back home and laughed for whole time. We...

    I don't believe it will rain

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

    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 love, love rain. I love the smell of soil

    and fresh trees and cold breeze. I live in a tropical country where we have a monsoon season of 2-4 months.Since I was little I sneaked out to get wet in rain. My grandfather's house had big, ancient trees in the front yard and ponds in two sides. I can't forget running through...

    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.

    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...

    when i was a child. I remember one day it was storming and raining, the day was gloomy and cold and i loved it i was tucked into bed for a nap and it was the first time i never complained about taking a nap. I wasn't scared of the thunder, i fell asleep listening to it and...

    Storms inspire my creative side.

    When I hear raindrops' patter on the windows, feel thunder claps nearing, and see lightning flashing in the sky, I am invigorated. After midnight, a heavy rainstorm is set to unleash. Hopefully I can get some writing done as the storm rages outside.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Sometimes when it's pouring,

    I'll go outside and stand in the rain until I'm soaked. In a sense, it liberates me. It gives me a chance to sort my thoughts and feelings. It makes me feel alive and appreciate the little things in life.

    Plain rain is ok, but I live

    for thunderstorms. I can't help but watch lightning. Many times I would walk around outside, usually getting soaked in the process. I've even seen ball lightning (it's really rare). I was less than 100 feet when lightning struckn a power line. the noise was increible...
