    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

    I love monsoon season in Arizona.

    The lightning is beautiful! The rain is so refreshing in the hot summer!

    Only on hot summer days/nights.

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

    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 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.

    Tbh I'm actually afraid of the sound

    when it's loud, the light or sight doesn't scare me.. But the sound if loud enough can make me cry.. It started when I was younger, I was coming home from school and I lost my key that my dad gave me because they (mom & dad) were gonna be at work, it was raining and thundering...

    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...

    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.

    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 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'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...

    Wind is blowing and the thunder is booming.

    Makes one feel so small. I love the sight, sound, and smell of a storm.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

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

    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...

    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...

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