9:36am. A flash and and the sound of a explosion wakes me up. I stand up, cursing ranomdly to myself saying, "Holy Sh*t! Holy Sh*t!". My room is shaking, i look outside and my neighbors home is shaking. It isn't until i look to the sky and see a violent storm. Lighting Forking, the clouds flashing from Black to Purple. Why didn't i sense this storm before? I start walking out of my room gazing at this power from the sky, only to walk into my wall... This is unlike any storm i have ever seen. Its not Electrical, Its not Hot, it came out of nowhere with a Big Bang so powerful, it ripped the tree's from the ground. This storm woke me up this morning. 01/02/2010 (Day/Month/Year) And is still going with light winds and the lightning forking off in the distance. Out of the storms i have seen and sensed, this one is the most violent i have seen and the only storm i have never sensed coming.

I love storms. I find them exciting and must have been a storm chaser in another life. Where are you from?
