    I once rode a horse over a mountain for an unpleasant purpose. On the return, I was caught in a tumultuous storm. It was August and the fury had been building all day. The release was tumultuous and the rain was incredible. Sheets of water ran from the brim of my hat and I...

    Last night it rained quite hard.

    Even though the drowning noises of thunder and rain creep into my room I seem to love every slight whisper of an echo it leaves.

    Storms have always made me feel comfortable

    for some reason. I don't know why, but when it rains I feel an overwhelming sense of being content.

    Only on hot summer days/nights.

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

    Thunderstorms While Camping

    I love a good thunderstorm when out camping in the mountains of Idaho. Hearing the rain on the tent or camper is so soothing to listen to. Having the thunder and lightening just adds to the experience Mother Nature has to offer, she is pretty amazing when she gets the whole band...

    New Mexico summer storms are by far the most

    intoxicating forms of weather I've ever encountered. My family was caught in one while driving through the rolls of dried lava beds one year - we could feel the static charge in the air as we drove over roll after roll, letting the lightning flash is into blindness for seconds...

    When the sounds cracks into my ears,

    I get a rush of excitement. The only thing to do is cuddle up and listen under warm blankets.

    I love thunder storms.

    I will go out and watch then for hours on a high mountaintop. It's like natures fireworks and I just can't seem to get enough.

    Oh Florida summers are the best! Every afternoon at about 4 they start coming in. The sky's grow dark and you can see the wall of water as it approaches. It could be raining in the front yard and sunny in the back... working next to the airport means lots more lightning than the...

    Reason I love thunderstorms is

    that they make me feel alive. It is almost like I can feel some of the energy that a thunderstorm contains inside me.

    I love the sound of thunder

    and the sight of lightning as it flashes across the night sky. I like the sound rain drops make as they bounce off the roof of the house. I like how the storm creates powerful winds, forcing the trees to bend and dance with the wind.

    When I was a little girl,

    I lived in a very volatile family. I don't have many memories of my childhood, but sometimes scenes in my head play of my mother throwing dishes and screaming curses at my father. These storms took place frequently inside our home. Our Carolina home was supposed to be a safe...

    that billows in right before the torrent of rain. The scent before a storm is beautiful, it reminds me of all the life that is around me. Sometimes if it isn't too cold, i'll stand outside with my arms open till I'm drenched. The other week i was doing just that when i tilted my...

    There was one last night

    and it was amazing... I was so thrilled to see the lightening and have the thunder shake the world... And watching the heavy downpour of the rain. My dogs in the other hand... Freaked out and were barking and terrified for a good while afterwards.

    but I live in Amarillo Texas and Thunderstorms are as rare as an honest politician. We just don't have that much moisture. I have seen rain before but then again I am pretty old.

    Meteorological Climax

    I love the thick, damp heat of waiting all afternoon.  The air tastes different, ionized and pre-electric.  The wind picks up and I can smell the herbs in my garden, their leaves ruffling against one another.  I can feel the restless energy of the day picking up, and the grey...

    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.

    they are one of the beautiful things nature has

    to offer. it is like a movie right outside your window. I love when a hot summers rain accompanies them. i don't mind when the power goes out. it gives me a reason to light all the candles in the house and wrap up in a blanket with a cup of coffee.

    The sound the drops make on the roof just above

    my head, and the crackle and flash of the storm swirling outside is like my perfect lullaby. Instead of a storm whirling inside my head like most nights, I, for once, sleep soundly.
