    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...

    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...

    Listening to the thunder roll,

    and the rain hit the roof, seeing the lighting flashes light up my dark room. I crack the window just a bit, so I can feel, and smell the breeze. It's a perfect night, I curl up in you're arm, and you give me tender kisses holding me close skin to skin, breath to breath, heart...

    I'm watching one right this minute.

    The rain is pouring down with intensity, the wind picking up as the night sky is lit up beautifully with huge lightning bolts, moving horizontally and vertically. The thunder is getting louder and becoming more frequent, the boom is rattling my windows. I never grow tired of...

    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...

    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.

    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 love thunderstorms.

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

    We had just moved to South Carolina

    and was excited to see our first thunderstorm rolling in. We ran out the apartment door like two little kids. Standing under the over hang we ooh'd and ahh'd at the lightning so much closer to the ground than we were used to up north. Our eyes met and twinkled excited for the...

    Only on hot summer days/nights.

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

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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
