    Since it is Spring and thunderstorms are coming with an increasing frequency. What do you like to do with it is raining cats and dogs and everything else and it sounds like angels are having a bowling tournament above your house?

    For some reason I love making some tea, and reading a book downstairs. After that I like to turn on the tv and watch a movie until I fall asleep in my bed.

    We often sit on our covered patio, until the lightning strikes get a little close. My husband loves the rain, to sit watching it disturb the surface of the river that flows next to our place. I like it because it reminds me of enjoying the rain as a kid on our summer porch.

    Where I could fall asleep in the evening on one of the chaise lounges, listening to the raindrops, my grandmother rocking in her chair next to me. And the thunder usually distant and more soothing than frightening.

    Put on some old clothes and lip sync to Oran "Juice" Jones.

    We don't get thunderstorms until summer. Generally, we're so dry by then, you just take off your shirt (if you had one on) and walk out into the rain to rehydrate.

    If it's a really big boomer, the dogs all huddle in the house, and you have to have a little party to lighten them up.

    It was raining in SoCal today! Usually I stay inside. Maybe workout if it's my routine day. Maybe even enjoy a nice warm cup of tea with agave.

    I want to run naked in a rain storm. Wanting, needing, waiting, for you to justify my love.

    I like riding my bike in the rain, but I don't get much of a chance here in SD. OTOH, when visiting my sister once in FLL I had a good hour-long ride thru downpours that just wouldn't end. Had a blast!

    One warm summer evening in 1968 we had a thunderstorm in northern New Jersey. And I took my new Yamaha motorcycle out into it, wearing just a T-shirt & shorts, but always a helmet.

    And I showered in the warm rain on rural 2-lane back roads, the torrent driven by my bike's speed, and loved it. The lighting got intense at times, crashing all around me, but I really wasn't afraid.

    Next day I had to clean the bike of all the road grime, but I didn't care.

    If you're the only one there, I don't think it qualifies as sex. Just self-pleasuring.

    In NYC, enjoy the sound of thunder and rain;

    In Miami, delay/postpost travel and enjoy the steady rain for 3 hours until the rainstorm inevitably subsidies; and

    In Tulsa, watch the news to see where the inevitable tornado and doppler indicated "hook echo" is striking while the tornado warning sirens blare and unsecured items (lawn chairs, outside potted plants, trash bins, children's toys) fly through the air.

    For what it's worth, Tulsa was hit by a tornado two weeks ago. Welcome to storm season.

    Except, here in my area the electrical power tends to go out during storms. It may be a metro area, but our service sucks. So when lightning approaches I shut down this computer.

    When I was younger I used to love to sit by the window and watch the rain and lightning. Nowadays I usually just read a book if the power goes out.

    My first year in Michigan, I got caught out in a thunderstorm on my motorcycle. I didn't worry too much, not realizing that summer thunderstorms in the flatlands are entirely different from those in the mountains. At home, lightning (almost) always strikes the tops of the ridges and mountains. Don't go up there: no problem. And mountains have... drainage.

    Of course, in the flatlands, your head may be the tallest point for miles around. Or the tree that you're standing next to. icon_confused.gif And there is no drainage.

    Before long, the water in the street was up to the footpegs on my bike. icon_eek.gif I kept going as fast as I dared, for fear that if I stopped, the water would start coming in the mufflers. Made it home unscathed. Well, except my Birkenstocks were ruined. Fortune favors the young and dumb with fast reflexes.
