    During summer in South Africa its a

    thunderstorm lovers dream. Most afternoons it will rain with thunder which sometimes is soft from the distance or hair raising. When you have a metal roof the most amazing thing is when its raining late at night and the thunder is off in the distance.

    The best feeling is to be out in a summer storm,

    on a hilltop wearing just a pair of shorts, where you can howl into the wind and feel the release of all the pent up frustration of modern life, that feeling of being at one with the elements, battered by the wind and the rain across your bare skin.. Its one of the only times I...

    I've lived in the Midwest

    for many years, even though I wasn't born there. One of the big adjustments I had to make was when the mid-summer thunderstorms would roll in. My goodness are they intense! Lightning so strong that it lights up the entire night sky like the world's most powerful flashlight...

    Having relatives from the South (e.

    g., Louisiana and Texas), I have heard plenty of old wives’ tales. My favorite one is during a thunderstorm, cover your mirrors, turn off all electricity, sit down and wait because God is talking. I remember being in the fourth grade, thinking that God was screaming at me...

    The heavy rain, smell of dirt

    and rain, and the loud crashes of thunder is great! I hate Houston weather, but Mother Nature did me a solid today!

    It's all thanks to my dad.

    Growing up, and even now, whenever it rained/stormed, he was always on the front porch smoking his cigarette, watching it. I would always join him when he did, and because of that I've grown up loving rain and storms.

    Currently having a nice downpour here with

    heavy rain and hail. Lightning and thunder galore! Gotta love Colorado, hot and steamy one minute, cold and wet the next.

    I like the smell in the air during a

    thunderstorm. I like raising the shades and drinking coffee while I watch the storm pass through.

    I don't know why, there's just something about

    them that I find... Exciting and cool. I remember as a kid I was just terrified of them, I couldn't sleep alone. But now, I just sit up in bed, close my eyes and listen to all the different sounds that come along with the storm

    Thunderstorms are just

    so exciting, both to watch and listen to. Some people find them scary, and there is certainly something fearsome about them, but it's also really energizing and almost thrilling for me. Sitting by a window, or on a porch or whatever and watching the lightning come closer, and...

    Chance Of Scattered Showers

    step into the rain. and feel my fingertips caress you. turn your face to the sky and drink me in. stretch out your arms and feel my breath surround you. twisting and living around you. surrender yourself to be free. turn your eyes to the lightning quickly before it is gone...

    When ever there's a thunderstorm at night I

    will sit at the end of my bed, with the window open, and I will watch the lightning and listen to the thunder all night long.

    I love thunderstorms.

    I feel I can cry my eyes out and the rain just washes them away and replaces them with its own.

    Only on hot summer days/nights.

    It's unexplainable there's nothing like a thunderstorm after it has been hot and humid all day.

    Crack! A bolt of lightning.

    Thump! The thunder heralds the downpour. The Earth drinks her fill, and man is thwarted again in the things he does.

    i don't get why people get scared

    or think this sort of weather is depressing. the sun depresses me. get that bright sh!t out of here. give me cloudy and comforting. the sounds are so relaxing. all i gotta do is listen and i'm entertained.

    Thunder and lightning storms are sooooooo

    amazing to lay in bed and watch out the window. The lightning does'nt take anything away from the meditative quality that watching the rain can have. Granted, the thunder can be super startling, but its a cool reminder that nature is always in charge outside that window...

    Lovemaking....

    ... Some of the hottest lovemaking can be experienced during a thunderstorm. The dark bedroom lit up only by flashes of lightening. A strobe light from the sky. Hot.

    The skies just got really dark.

    Hoping that means a good thunderstorm is on the way. I usually prefer them during the night but we haven't had a god thunderstorm in awhile now so I guess I won't be too picky.

    I am listening to the sound of the thunder now.

    .. a low rumble that becomes louder and more frequent... a crescendo culminating in a loud crash at the end. The night sky is lighting up in spots as the lightning flashes. Soon I'll hear the gentle sound of the rain hitting the windows.
