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.
well i love storms they make feel full of life and everytime i see them i just imagine my self at the top of amountain with the sound of the thunder jumpimg from one montain to another i will feel supernatural hhhh it doesnt scare me it maakes me feel so awake that life might end up in amoment amd iam here doin nth
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.
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.
A little bit of me is insane, Chasing storms a bit, more so wildlife. The Adventurists feeling is awesome. Calming down with age.

Lightning: Hide from it or like to watch it happen?Not too close. I prefer about 20 miles away so I can take images. This photo is like 30-40 miles away because didn't hear the thunder. When it's real close, I'm inside looking out the window.

How do I help my child get over her fear of storms?She is 3 and would sleep through bad storms until last year when we moved and lived in an area where the storms seem to be more intense. We had to go down to the basement several times last spring. Now, if it's storming during the night, she wakes...

A house or building is the best shelter to prevent getting hurt while lightning is going on. You never go under a tree. These days cars are so well equipped with protection against lightning that will be a second choice. Good luck to everyone while trying to stay safe. I am looking...
