    Especially when you can stand out and watch it coming in. The only thing I don't like is when there is a possibility of tornadoes but when it is simply a thunderstorm....I love it.

    Most of the time yes, unless they are keeping me up at night. I hate that! LOL They don't scare me but I don't sleep at times because I'm tuned into the storm.

    I love them, dark and stormy weather is my favorite kind of weather. I love rainy and thundering weather. There is no weather that I like than the rain water soaking me, while the lightning flashes beautifully across the sky and the thunder screams powerfully. Thunder and lightning storms make me feel so excited and happy.

    I enjoy the ones that don't try to kill you. The ones that rumble that song of natures power but leave destruction to a minimum.
    Obviously I have been in thunder storms that wipe out anything in their path with lightning strikes that seem like machine gun shots every 4 or 5 seconds, and last for 30 minutes or longer.
    Thunder storms like that are more terrifying than just scary.

    I was living in Honolulu, Hawaii in July 1971 when Hurricane Denise dissipated before reaching the island, but caused massive 40 and 50 foot title waves that buried many homes on the shoreline in 30 to 40 feet of sand for miles of the coastline.
    After the storm was said to be dissipated off shore we went to see the devastation on the coastline off Honolulu and saw homes and hotels with just the top 5 feet or so sticking out of a mountain of sand, was surreal.
    Glad i was living more inland in the cheap housing, because the rich people got whacked, Lol.
    Something to be said for being poor, and safer, Lol.

    I believe that 1983 hurricane in Houston was Hurricane 'Alicia', causing $2.6 billion in damage and killing 21 people........ was the worst Texas hurricane since Hurricane Carla in 1961.
    I'd get the hell out of Texas while you still got your skin, I think your 9 lives are up!
    Lol, Lol, Lol.

    Yes Alicia and I lived in a very heavily treed area ... No electricity for nine days!! My swimming pool turned emerald green! went right over us took down several trees luckily went across the road and not into our home. Then there was the RAIN/FLOOD HURRICANE took out all the hospitals downtown with generators in the basements! Then right after Katrina Rita remember the mass exodus from Galveston.Clear lake? Plus a lot of jumpy Houstonians All sat on highways 18 hours cause nobody knew to make all the lanes GO OUT ONE WAY??? I was in a condo in the Galleria that time but we got power back in 6 hours because we were on the grid with The galleria and the building housing the FBI... Then IKE 12 DAYS NO ELECTRIC NO INTERNET NO TV

    Where did we move? Florida DUH!!!

    Especially where I live, which is in the middle of the worlds largest ponderosa forest. of course the lightning that accompanies the thunder can cause fires, which is bad in someways and good in others.

    I love the raw power generated by a big thunderstorms. I like standing in the wind and rain, watching the lightning and listening to the thunder.

    I've always loved a good storm. From the time I was a kid and young man. Still do. There's something just powerfully elemental I like about them. Not the damage they do to property or peoples lives. Don't know if I'm brave or just too stupid to be afraid of them...

    Used to be a very common occurrence when I lived in the Sierra Nevada mountains, around here though we don't get them much at all. I loved watching the storms pass through the mountains growing up.

    They're just so wild when they echo through the canyons in the mountains. Rumble rumble!

    We don't get many thunderstorms complete with lightening in our area, and we rarely ever have to worry about tornadoes, so I enjoy a good thunderstorm when we get one! We can always use the rain!

    they are different... I dont really see much lightening streaking across the sky... it seems to be just a continuous rolling rumbling of thunder and a sky that flashes ... if you saw the movie cast away... when he was in the life raft ... and the entire sky was lighting up and then complete darkness with more lighting followed by more pitch darkness thats what it is like here... Plus they tell you to take cover because of tornados... but you cant see crap ... just the whole sky blasting light and then dark... I hate the storms here...
