I love watching the lightning and hearing the rain fall on the roof. I also love the smell of the air outside right after a thunderstorm.

I love thunderstorms. I love the sound of rain on a roof too. But best of all is the soudn of rain on a tent when you're camping. It is so relaxing and gets me to sleep like a baby.

Thanx for your response! I've never been camping during the rain, but I have been at someone's house who had a metal roof and it's really cool to hear the rain on that as well.

I used to be really fascinated by thunderstorms and rainstorms, but after having a tornado rip through my street I've become a little more jumpy rather than fascinated.

Thanx for the response and I'm sorry to hear of your traumatic experience. I can understand why you wouldn't be so fascinated by them now.

I love rainstorms. Thunderstorms are nice if someones is with me. I get afraid if all of the lights and stuff go out and I am all alone. I also like the smell of the rain, wet grass, etc. I like a good rainstorm around 8pm, right before bed; I seem to sleep better.

Thanx for the response! Do you get pretty good storms where your at?

No. :( They're really pithy. Had a good one the other week though - went on all night and there were like three of them! Never had that down here before! I was up all night watching and listening to it - even blew out the electrics for the whole town. Coooooooooooool.

It seems like we used to get bigger ones when I was younger, but we still get a few good ones from time to time. Where abouts are you at? I'm in Michigan.

I'm with you all the way. I absolutely love watching the lightening flash and the thunder roll. The smell is fantastically clean, and there is nothing better than standing out under the open sky watching it all happen.

Nothing can quite duplicate that smell. I've looked at the Yankee candles that are supposed to have the after a storm smell, but it just doesn't compare. It's always been one of my dreams when I get a house to have a big skylight in one of the rooms so I can watch storms. Thanx for your response!

Have you ever heard thunder or seen lightning in the winter time? I have once, a few years ago. I was so wierd yet cool at the same time.

I like watching the lightening. I have a couple dogs that are afraid of the thunder. I have a couple who run back and forth from the window to the back door barking at it wanting to get it.

Thanks for the response. Animals are funny to watch during weather changes. :)

Yes, the horses run back and forth bucking and carring on when a cold front or a storm is coming in.

I love a good thunderstorm. We have a screened in porch attached to our house. My husband and kids all like to sit on the porch during a thunderstorm. It's better than watching tv!

I like them at night when I can just lay back and listen to them. I don't like being out in them.
