    Currently they are happening where I live and I wonder...
    How many of you actually like them?

    My old pet was afraid of them... and some of my friends are terrified but I love them.

    I love thunderstorms.

    When I was a kid, they were getting me so excited that I would almost automatically throw up.

    Yeap, I was weird like that... icon_confused.gif

    I love thunderstorms. I find it the best time to go to sleep. I miss seeing the really strong ones when I grew up in Kansas. I still remember when I was 7 seeing the prettiest lightning show and watching it in the middle of the night.

    Hadn't thought about it for years until I read this thread...I remember my dad walking me outside to the mailbox when I was probably about 4 years old. A thunderstorm was coming and there was lightning and thunder all around, before the rain came. He held my hand and wanted me to know that there was nothing to be afraid of. So...have to say I like a good thunderstorm.

    Damn, thanks for the memory...Dad passed away a couple of years ago.

    In Kansas, you had better like and respect them.... and the adverse things that can happen.

    Like baseball sized hail and half mile wide tornadoes.

    i love the feeling before the rain comes down, as the lighting strikes and thunder rumbles, the sky is a deep hazy green, the heat rising off the ground and the sound of silence as everything living has long taken shelter other then you.

    I love them too. When I was a kid, my sister and I would sit on our roof to watch them in the distance. When they reached us, we would go for bike rides.

    Thunderstorms are entertaining, provided the electricity doesn't go out. I have surge suppressors on the electronic stuff, but not UPS on everything. So it means resetting a bunch of digital clocks around the place, and the HP printer has to be paired back with my partner's computer (my own computer is hard-wired to it, not WiFi like his, and so is immediately available again after power interruptions).

    And our home entertainment center goes out of kilter somehow, the external speakers losing connection with the TV, which is a big hassle to restore. I have to go through like 10 levels of menu on the TV screen, not something I do everyday nor remember well from previous times.

    So thunderstorms can be fun to watch, but can come at a price. Whenever we come home and I see the microwave and oven clocks in the kitchen flashing I know we've had a power interruption for some reason, and a big job ahead of me. icon_sad.gif

    I love to sit on the porch and watch a good thunderstorm roll by. It's even better when at the shore. I also love to sit and watch the snow fall. Both are so peaceful and surreal for me. icon_biggrin.gif

    As for pets who don't like storms, the best thing for them is to have a small, enclosed place (that they can fit in) for them to hide in during the storm. Being in a smaller space helps them cope with the storm much better.
