      Are you a person who is a fan of thunderstorms or would you rather they didn't exist?

      I myself do enjoy thunderstorms as long as they are not too violent and I am indoors, the really violent ones that end up over your house really frighten me or if I see fork lightning too close.

      On Tuesday we had some thunder and there was one huge fork lightning bolt and a big crack of thunder at the same time, frightened the life out of me.

      Thunderstorms don't bother me even if I'm out in one so long as it isn't pouring with rain.

      We have had some thunder today with a few flashes of lightening, the only really big problem I have nowadays with thunder and lightening is that I get a really bad headache when they are around.

      Funny, there is a storm happening right now. I do enjoy a good thunder storm as long as the power does not go out! Last big storm we had the power was out till morning! Not to mention it was during a heat wave.

      I love thunderstorms! I got it from my mom cause she loves them too and I remember as kids thunderstorms were always exciting. Of course you always have to keep checking the weather just in case it's something dangerous. I love it when it rains hard and that smell the earth gets, everything smells fresh.

      Oh I do not want thunders and lightnings striking through the sky every now and then. All I want is rain because of the cold breeze and lovely sound of it ticking on the roof. I am afraid of lightnings too 'cause I've seen many people die because they have been hit by it. It was terrifying!

      I don't mind thunderstorms as long as they're not too violent. I think lightening is actually beautiful... when it is a safe distance from me.

      Actually do agree with you there luzlikely, lightening is really nice to look at from a distance as it can make some really nice patterns especially in the dark sky.

      I love thunderstorms because they amaze me! I like taking pictures of lightning because of the beautiful sharp edges! I love getting scared so I don't mind the violent thunder :D Whenever there are thunderstorms, I sit in front of my window pane and look at the clouds! :)

      Thunderstorms use to not bother me at all. But here lately we have had so many bad storms that I just don't trust a storm of any kind.

      I am a fan of storms. Love to watch them! My mother-in-law however, is deathly scared of them and she goes to the storm cellar for almost all of them.

      Come to think of it I think now if we got one it probably wouldn't be too much fun because I would miss my technology but when we used to get them before technology wasn't as big as it is now :)
