    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!

    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.

    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...

    I love thunderstorms.

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

    Having relatives from the South (e.

    Wind is blowing and the thunder is booming.

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

    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...

    Here in New Jersey we had a thunderstorm in the

    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...

    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.

    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.

    Why isn't there an "I Hate Thunderstorms" group?

    The sound of thunder and seeing lightning freaks me out. And we are currently under a tornado watch/warning which is not good at all. School should be cancelled.
