    Of hot weather, temps sometimes bordering on 30 degrees centigrade, the weather has finally broken - led in bed with the window open, I can hear the rain and thunder - which I wouldn't mind so much if I didn't have to go out In it later.

    Poltergeist

    The movie Poltergeist is what hooked me on the sound of thunder. I also now have a fear of clowns thanks to this movie and Stephen King novels. LOL The counting of time between the lighting strike and the thunder crack was a way of bringing my curiosity forth. I love the sound...

    I Love the Sound and Feel of It.....

    Thunder is the sound of lightening. And while lightening has its own power and magnificence thunder to me is much better. I enjoy sitting outside on my porch, closing my eyes and feeling the low rumble go through me and then the loud "clap" of thunder in...

    The Louder The Better

    The funny thing is I used to be pretty scared of thunder. Especially if it was very loud or nearby but now I find myself disappointed if there's a weather forecast for thunder and nothing happens. It's very soothing to me... I love to curl up with a book, some hot tea or hot...

    Amazing Lightening

    Well I was flying back home from Denver and as we were flying in the distance I saw a great big streak of lightening. I kept watching out the window and I kept seeing the lightening. I know this group is supposed to be thunder but I thought this was really cool. It was absolutely...

    Thunderous Shelter

    Thunder is the laughter of immortality.   The applause of titans and their primordial friends.   It sooths.  If the heavens are this powerful, and have not destroyed humanity yet, then they are on our side - defending from emptiness and silence. ...

    My Story

    I used to tell my siblings that there was a story behind storms. There were 3 gods sitting in heaven one wanted an onion to eat. The rain were the tears of the person who was cutting the onion. The lightning was the swift slicing of the onion. The thunder was the grumbling of the...

    Not a Good Summer

    This has not been a good year for thunderstorms around here.  They come during the day while I am at work.  The ones that have come through haven't been to strong.  I love to lay in bed and listen to them roll in.  Well maybe we will get a few more this fall.

    There Is This Reassuring Roar

    It is the relief of hearing the sound break after the flash of lightening creates that eery silence.  They mystery of the rumbling of the sky, which is best of all when accompanied by a cloud burst.  I find myself willing internally that it rains heavier- cleansing...

    It's So Soothing

    In bed, at night, preferrably cuddled up with someone else, there has always been something so comforting about thunder.
