    I do love a good thunderstorm.

    The rumbles, crashing and lightning. It's a taste of God's majestic power.

    Alabama Thunderstorms With My Papa

    My grandfather, whom I called Papa, really knew how to enjoy a good thunderstorm. He would put on his hat (he did that any time he went outdoors) and go sit on the covered front porch in his favorite chair. I was practically his shadow, following him out and pulling up my own...

    Technically... I enjoy listening to

    thunderstorms and watching lightning storms. I'm drawn to the sheer power, force, and beauty of it all. As a kid I would open my bedroom window at night and just stare out to watch and listen. My heart would speed at every loud boom that shook the walls, every sudden cackle as...

    Mesmerizing Storm

    I remember the first time I watched a storm. It was when I was in the Keys. I had never seen a storm dance across the ocean. The colors above the storm were golden. It was the most beautiful experience I've ever had. I have watched storms from afar on the hill where I live now...

     Sitting by the window with a cup of tea

    in my hand. That's where I think the most. There's just something so inspirational about the thunderstorms. It's as if the rain is a million ideas in the process. The lightning is that one lucky idea and the thunder is that which brings the idea to life.

    I love the sound of the rain

    and the loud booms. It's almost relaxing to me. My own little world as I sit and think of what people of said to me and how it made me feel. I just zone out and rethink the should have, could haves.

    The Spark

    Grab a cup of hot chocolate and sit down with all the lights out , light a candle and just sit watching the flashes and the rain and clouds change colour with every strike of that forked stream of light. Incredible! Mother nature making her own kind of music :)

    Bold.. Scary.. Yet Magnificant.

    How could something so powerful and deadly also be one of the most beautiful sights to behold?  I love a great thunderstorm in the distance although I am slightly terrified of it.  I love how it lights up the night sky especially in the summer, how it makes the air feel...

    Love Them

    It just amazes me that such dramatic, random events can take place in our environment. Usually if a storm approaches I'll take the time to watch and appreciate it for what it truly is. Natures reminder that it doesn't care who we are or how much money we have. It will screw us up...
