I Love Thunder and Lightening Storms

    When the stroke of lightening fills the sky

    then dissipates into darkness I am drawn to search for the light and comfort found in the perfectly formed circle of a moon. With the deep night staring back and feeling the soft drizzle of the August rain on my face I realize the hopelessness of nature in all her fury is bleak...

    It kind of interests me

    when I hear thunder and see lightening, but I LOVE it when there's a really bad storm. I like to go outside and just look up at everything that's happening.

    Love The Summer Monsoons!

    Growing up in Southern Arizona you really learn to love thunderstorms. When I was a kid we used to have a storm at night, then sit out on the patio and watch the lightning light shows over the mountains surrounding the city (actually, still do).

    The Power Of Mother Nature

    I've always loved thunder and lightning storms. I could just stand there observing them, and listening to them, for the rest of my life, if nature would allow. In the daytime, you see a bright pinkish flash of light rip across the sky, triggering your senses to high alert. You...

    I was in Zimbabwe in early 2013 to see family.

    During that visit we spent a couple of days in a cabin along the Zambezi River. On the second night after it had gotten dark (like pitch black), it started to get windy very quickly. The windows slammed shut, which nearly gave my grandad a heart attack, and the ground vibrated...

    I love the blue-purple-white hues of the

    lightning as it forks the sky. Also the sound of thunder that follows. I feel like lightening is most beautiful thing ever. I could sit and watch the sky light up. Though sound of thunder scares me sometimes, specially when or alone. or sleeping :p when I was a kid, my granny...

    I Can't Wait For The First One Of The Year

    It's cold and snowy up here. Soon the sky will darken and the rumble of thunder will be heard in the distance, if it's at night a flash of light will cross the sky. I will sit up and watch the sky and it's free show. It will be warm and spring will be here. I can't wait.

    On a hot summer night.

    When the sound carries the sound of thunder for miles. And the lightning streaks across the sky out ahead of the storm. Suddenly, the air becomes very still. It's not unlike being at the top of a roller coaster, calm but you know something is about to happen. Then the blast of...

    The Electricity In The Air Excites Me

    I sometimes stand outside and imagine that the wind is clearing life's worries from my body, and the thunderstorm recharges my soul. I like to recall more care free times like being a child on a swing for the first time, or skiing down a beautiful run at sunset

    I don't know why, but I always have.

    I also enjoy it when I can help comfort my dog when she gets scared during the storms. I enjoy comforting animals.

    One Is Happening Right Now

    A storm is going on now as I am writing this. It's really epic to watch the lightning as it just lights up the whole sky and the thunder comes so loudly at times that it is almost like an explosion of sound that just becomes a dull rumble until it happens all over again. I love...

    I Miss Them

    Back when I lived in Texas, we had thunder and lightening storms quite a bit.  They were magnificent and beautiful!  I used to wake up every day hoping we'd have one.  I really can't stand the sun.  Sunny days make me depressed. Anyway, since I've moved to...

    Power And Beauty

    To hear the first rumbling of a coming storm is breath-taking to me.  I see it as a signal to be still.  Be quiet.  Something much more powerful is about to make its presences known.  By me living in Central FL we have quite a few storms and you know when...

    Light And Sound

    I lived in the foothills of East Tennessee for a while when I was younger. We used to sit on the front porch and watch the storms roll by in the night. Flashes of lightening filled the sky with blue streaks, followed almost immediately by jolting cackles of thunder that shook...

    Curled Up Watching

    I actually find thunder and lightning storms peaceful. It may sound strange but I really do. Every time a storm comes up I will grab my blanket and my coffee, head out to the deck just to sit down and watch it go by. I like how it lights up the sky and how each boom and crackle...
