    How do you feel about storms?

    Madison Resare's status got me thinking about storms.  She said she loves them.  I am petrified of them, and it's not just on a superficial, "aahh, a storm" level, it's a deep, physical level - my stomach twists up in knots, my hands shake, my heart pounds - and the physical symptoms usually show up even before the actual fear itself does!  Anyway, just wondering about you all, and if you love, loathe or could care less about storms?

    I enjoy storms. Thunder sounds cool and lightning looks cool. I never feel fear of the weather, even in extreme natural disasters. Although I probably should fear them. I'd probably be that idiot that's recording the storm instead of taking shelter.

    I absolutely love storms. I used to run outside whenever they started and just go for a walk; I got some of my best and most important thinking done in the middle of a thunderstorm. smile

    I find them to be a reminder of how amazing this world is and how lucky I am to be a part of it.

    I love storms, Elizabeth. I love the sound of a hard rain, I like looking at it through the window or even on the front porch. I'm fascinated by the sound of thunder even though a big one makes me jump. I also like to look at big lightning streaks in the sky. There's something beautifully natural about storms that I just love. I wrote a poem hub about hurricane Irene becoming a tropical storm. So sorry they affect you negatively.

    I actually considered becoming a storm chaser while I was growing up, and I still think it would be a great job to have. Growing up in tornado alley could have given me a real fear of storms but I enjoy them greatly. In fact, as I write this I hear thunder and see lightning. I'm going to sleep great tonight!

    I love a good storm, Elizabeth -- especially a thunder storm with lots of rain.  My mother was terrified of thunder and big storms, so I understand your feeling about them. There is an old Native American legend about thunder and lightening. Thunder and Lightening were twins and they often had battles in the sky. I will have to look that up to remember the full story.

    Loud thunder and the crack of lightening reminds me how powerful Nature is and how little we are in the face of such power.

    I really wish I could enjoy storms.  I live in the Tennessee Valley, and we have bad storms every spring and fall, but I used to not be afraid of them.  For some reason, though, I developed this terrible fear about 12 years ago and it's only gotten worse.

    I have seen many storms and enjoyed some. But a little bit of fear takes over whenever they are too wild. Storms can do much damage to people and property which is not a desirable thing.

    We used to sit inside, with the curtains open, on a dark night and watch them, when I was a child. My mother loves them, so she'd get us all comfy to watch.

    My partner is scared of them, particularly at night, so I tend to be the comforter - yay cuddles! When I was pregnant, the wind of storms would make me nervous but we did have a plastic green house that kept being bowled...that might have been it!

    I don't mind them, they remind me of my mother, and my grandad - as a child my mother told me thunder was just grandad playing bowls in the sky - and I've never been afraid of it since!

    After two tornadoes near me within 10 days last year, I am scared of the power of storms. Seven children died in a school near me, and that tore everybody apart. This year not one storm came to the area. Maybe God  will give us a little rest. I know the whole country suffered through bad snowstorms this past winter and other phenomena. Climate is changing, and I hope we can adjust to these changes. We have no choice, but we can have hope for the future.

      Really they are so wild and powerful that some tragedy will be there at some place or other. Only God can save us from them. We can do nothing but keep faith on Him.
