Question Of The Day


I love a good thunderstorm. All that lightning and thunder remind me of the awesome power of nature. I'm not particularly fond of getting stuck in a downpour but the sounds of it are very relaxing.

How about you?

  1. Not afraid but I stay out of lightening whenever possible and I like watching from inside.

    1. That makes sense! And it's much cozier that way.

  2. Love them! My mom's mom was deathly afraid of them. When I was growing up sometimes we would have to stop what we were doing to go to her house when a storm was coming because she didn't like being alone. I determined then not to let that get in my way so I taught ny kids to love them. We would watch from windows the lightning and love hearing the booming thunder.

    1. Some people are very afraid of them. That's great that you taught your kids to love them.

  3. I like to sit on the front porch and watch them. Am a little nervous to be out in them though

    1. They can be dangerous. Best to view them from a safe place.

  4. Thunderstorms are one of my favorite things in the world. We sometimes sit on the porch to watch them over the mountains or jump in the car to try to photograph lightening.

    I especially love the long rolling thunder that can keep up for several minutes. Yum!

  5. Driving in it? yes

    in the house, not so much. Unless I'm half-awake and my mind is really out there at the moment

    1. Driving in that type of weather is the worst! You can't see a thing. Very scary.

  6. I used to have no fear but after years of reading of their effects after every storm I have a healthy respect for them now! For instance, when the lightning is quite close I do not touch the taps or metal sink, or talk on the phone, or stand too close to windows. Those are all situations I've read about in which people were struck. I like my nervous system the way it is, thank you :) Maybe we have more potent lightning here or something - haha

    1. A healthy respect is not a bad thing, Jenny. It can be quite dangerous and being a little cautious is smart.

  7. I'm not afraid, but sometimes an extreme clap of thunder startles me. Storms frighten Penelope. She trembles, poor little girl.

    Love,

  9. If I was afraid of storms I would be living in the worst place possible! So, no. I'm not. 😁

  11. Not afraid of thunderstorms, in fact they feel kind of "cozy" to me. My father would sit out on the porch and watch the lightning. Because we never treated thunder storms as something scary, our kids never developed a fear of them. We would have some pretty strong ones and would ask the kids the next morning if they heard some of the thunder, and they wouldn't even be aware that there was a storm - they'd sleep right through them! -Jenn

    1. If they could sleep right through them that definitely demonstrates that there was no fear of them!

  12. I have always loved a good thunder/lightning storm. I like when nature takes over to let her presence be known.

    1. I know exactly what you mean, Jim! Mother Nature certainly lets her presence be known sometimes.

  13. Not thunder but terrified of dams. You know, like Hoover or Three Gorges.

    1. I LOVE the way you describe it, Jan. And yes, as long as the power doesn't go out, it's all good :)

  15. I'm not afraid, but I don't like bad storms that could knock out the power. And the kitties don't particularly like them.

  16. I am rarely afraid of any type of storm unless it's bad enough to do damage to my house. A few years ago a hail storm hit dropping baseball size hail onto my house. It all but took the roof off. Scared the crud out of me.

    1. I'm totally with you on that, Cheryl! When there are very bad storms, I also worry about our home. Some severe damage can occur during those times.

  17. I'm not too bad with storms, always prefer to be indoors though!

    All the best Jan

  18. I enjoy them from indoors, but I our bigger dog Wiggy has a horrible time with it so now I don't enjoy them because she gets so scared.
