Safety In Danger
That is maybe the big attraction for me in thunderstorms. When natures raw power is displayed all around you while you are safely tucked away somewhere. The absolute lifting of your spirit. Why? Who knows. Maybe a primitive part of my brain still rules at that point or maybe it's just from a childhood memory of going to the circus with my mother when a huge storm broke loose. Remembering how tighly her hand held mine as the wind and rain threatened to rip me away. And then the safety of the tent with the clowns to make you laught again.
