Do you like or hate thunderstorms?

40 posts in this topic

:P Seriously though, do you like em or hate em. Me personal I love them, the sights and sounds of one...very soul stirring to me, but hey im a science lover so I guess that would explain it. :lol: Living in north Texas provides me with great storms like the one we had tonight. When you hear the loud clap of thunder, hear the lightning rip through the atmosphere and feel it hit the ground and make the house shake...awesome. Also I don't think theres a more impressive sight on earth than going down the highway over a hill that looks over the city and seeing lightning spider through the sky.....well maybe Aurora Borialis :AH-HA_wink: Edited by deftonesfan867

I love thunderstorms. They're beautiful in their power, and they usually bring temporary relief from summer mugginess.

Not a geek at all.

Thunderstorms are bitchin'. They are a real treat out West where it's dry summer/wet winter. I mean, I lived in Seattle where it just drizzled all the time. In California, when it finally decides to rain, it does so at a good clip. The other thing is that the hills studded with oak are gorgeous after the rainy season, looking like a set of a Steinbeck or Saroyan novel. Then, come summer, and it all turns brown...and the rattlesnakes kind of blend in.

They are more common on the Atlantic Seaboard. I'm sure that they can be quite an event over there.

I love thunderstorms... absolutely love them. I am totally relaxed, yet pumped with a bit of adrenaline when one is active. One reason I'd consider moving is our thunderstorms on the Island are just not nearly as cool as others in the nation. Not to mention, less frequent.

90% of the time I love them, but if I'm feeling vulnerable...

like running outside in the pouring rain, it can be a little freaky.

Last time we had a massive thunderstorm with lightning &

thunder it was pretty cool and lasted only about 7 minutes but

I was pissed because I was on route to Autozone with the

Super 88 that one afternoon when I got it running. I thought

to myself that at least if I get hit by lightning I'll be good since

the Super's got more metal than five new Camrys.

No she's not...all she is is yet another wannabe Californian with tacky annoying music and artificial blonde.

Rule #1: If you wanna pass as a Californian...don't be so whiny and LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! IM SOAKING UP THE SUN!! ...JUST DO IT

Rule #2: Pop is a no-no. Stick to a harder or edgier sound.

Rule #3: Going blonde? Yeaaaaaaaaaa SoCal is definitely brown.

No I used to like her back when she wasn't so damned affected, but when she decided to go pop and blonde and try to be Britney Spears except twice as old? Not feeling it. Gimme some "Leaving Las Vegas" any day of the week, though...

I love thunderstorms. Living in the Midwest, I get to see them all the time. There's nothing better than watching a huge line of thunderheads roll across the plains.

I like thunderstorms-especially the really powerful ones that roll across here every now and then. It's interesting to see the bright blue sky turn jet-black over the course of a few minutes when one is coming.

Oh I hear ya on that one. Makes the yards look like deserts when we don't get enough rain, one of the downsides of living in Texas. Love the Boondocks avatar btw 8)

I couldn't live without thunderstorms......what a rush. I love 'em so much that people tell me I should be a meteorologist. My favorite thing to do is go and sit on the beach when we are at the lake and watch a thunderstorm role across the lake. When it's really humid out we even get a little bit of pink lightning, which doesn't really happen round here. It's usually just a bright white. I sometimes think it is a little dorky too, but who they hell cares....thunderstorms rock.

Thunderstorms are great, I love to watch them no matter where i'm at, at work, at home, on the porch at my mom and dad's house, they are awesome to watch, normally I just turn the tv off, let the blinds up, kill the lights in the house and just watch....kinda mesmerized like a little kid watching a baby blue 1972 SS454 Chevelle slowly cruise past you in a parade.
