I like to listen to rain.  Thunder ain't all that bad either but the lightning scares the crap out of me.  I have heard too many stories about people getting struck by lightning, including houses and trees.  I am afraid of that happening to me.  I don't want my stuff to get ruined from a power surge and/but mostly I don't want to get struck and die.

I hate the lightening. But it is funny however, because I have not really seen one, only heard it. Never been in the way of lightening... honestly

I not only like to hear the rain, but I also like to see it. Thunder does not bother me one bit. Maybe I am a weirdo, but I do like to hear it. Sometimes I even try to discern what direction it is coming from...:-)

Holy cow! Are you serious? Strange and sad. Thank goodness it did not kill him. Lightening is very dangerous. It is not to be messed with.

My granddad was blinded by a lightening bolt! Fact!<br />

He's dead now, but not from the lightening. It didn't affect him much apart from his eye. He lived a very long life after getting struck :)

Ya I don't mind it from a far distance either. I like to look at storm photographs too. It is neat to look at but I do not want to be caught in a storm!

Don't have much problems with thunder other than knowing that lightning will get closer and closer. I have been very afraid of lightning since I was young and it struck very very close to our house and blew the light bulb in the fixture nearly right above where I was sleeping, or trying to anyway. It sparked and I thought for sure it had come through the house, ever since I have been very afraid of it. <br />

I hate the ones that are sooo close the earth shakes. EEK!! I love to watch it in the distance though.
