Thunderstorms doesn't bother me. I use stay outside when there's a thunderstorm going on. I like it the most during spring it's nice and warm out, its thundering and all you want to do is to relax and listen. Growing up I was taught to unplug everything around the house. Do you do something like that?

Well I can't just enjoy for that because I have my worries for other things especially in terms of gadgets. I don't like lightnings because at times it will kill you just like what happened to the father of my classmate.

I don't like thunderstorms at all. You are lucky that you find it peaceful and it does not bother you at all. What I do enjoy though is the lightning without thunder. I forgot the exact name of it but it happens when the temperature is too hot so at night it would occur. it is pretty awesome.

When I was a kid, I was taught never to use any electric applicances during a thunderstorm. As for whether I like it, it depends on where I am. If I am outside, definitely I will be grouching. But if I am at home and under the cosy comfort of my blanket, why not?

I'm good with thunderstorms if they aren't too bad, I love to cuddle up and watch movies and read books, sometimes I just sleep, it always seems to calm me for some reason & I can do just about anything relaxing. If my kids get freaked out, I get anxious and if the power goes out, I'm a jitterbug. I'm good as long as nobody starts telling ghost stories. Love thunderstorms in the spring/summer time because afterwards I like to open my windows and get a little fresh air.

I absolutely love thunderstorms! I've enjoyed them ever since I was a kid. I'm not entirely sure why I enjoy them so much. All I know is that I really do.

I am okay with thunderstorm as long as it does not make too much noise. My mom told me that the sound of thunder can severely damage ear drums. That's why, I was very scared of it when I was little. Even now it tends to wake me up from sleep. But I do want rain. This time there doesn't seem to be much rain in California. Moreover, it is now getting hotter here inland. I despise heat a lot. My parents actually told us to not watch tv and go on computer during thunder storm. I remember in many houses, it was practiced. As far as I know, thunder can damage them also.

I'm not afraid of thunderstorms and at the same time I'm not fond of them. In the past, I'm mostly excited by the fact that maybe the next day there won't be any classes at school though.

I don't fear them as a rule but I do know if they get severe it is alittle more scarier than if they last only a few minutes. We usually only get the short lived kinds and normally not as severe here, but lately how the weather has been so unpredictiable I never take anything for granted like that anymore. I do unplug things like the computer, but the other plugs stay in. I don't like putting the TV on but I always have a family member who does, he's nuts and a TV additc.
