I have to pee and sometimes Odie wakes me up. I close the window and go back to sleep when I heard thunder I'm afraid the light will strike me when ever it is open.

The best way to prevent us from lighting is just to sit under a closed conducting container. Car is a conducting container and the chances of getting lighting is very less when we sit inside a car.

At those times there were thunder and lighting plus strong wind, I could not sleep at all. Coz even if you close your eyes you will still see the flashes of the lightning and the sound of the strong wind will make you feel really scared.

When there's lightning all I have to do is close all the windows and go to bed. It's always nice to sleep when it's raining and the weather is cold

It is really a calculated risk to take the photos of lightning and thunder. Sometimes it may take your life.

If I felt that I didn't lock the door or the windows. In some instances, if I heard something unusual outside the house.

We just had this fire alarm in our building yesterday, that makes me wake up and check if there is really fire. Thta's why I prepared important stuff in a bag so as if emergency comes, I will readily take that with me. We have drills in that building, I have learned that we need to stay calm and focus if those emergencies happen. It really pays to be prepared at all times. Thanks

Sometimes we people just feels that those alarms are ringing but really it is not ringing at all, which means we are totally safe. It is just a feeling from our behind, we are not safe.

I just always lend my prayers to god before i go to sleep. This is the one of the basic thing which i used to do on every day and it had helped me a lot. I hope you can also make use of it.

Well, probably when I do sleep, I fall into a deep sleep. Many times my family told me: "Have you heard tonight what a fuss they made, etc..", But I do not wake up at all. I still have to say that just talking of thunder as you've started your thread, when it "falls" one very close to my window, then in this case possible to say, yes, unexpectedly wakes me up, but I'm not afraid! This, however, happens very rarely.

Sadie hound dog gets me up every night. She sleeps in another room in a pile of blankets. These she stirs around and around to make just the right nest, but late at night it gets cold and she wants to be covered up, so she barks junt one bark and if I'm lucky I wake up and go cover her up, if I don't wake up she comes and sticks her cold, wet nose in my face,ear,or any other bare part of me she can reach. That never fails to get me up. Almost anything else I sxleep through unless it's the fire alarm.

I am a light sleeper actually, when i hear the door open i could easily wake up. It started when i had kids and knowing i need to have their safety first makes me motivate to wake up immediately. The last time i woke up immediately was when a cat entered our house and was wrecking our kitchen!

I don't notice when there is a low noise beside me but I just used to wake up when there is heavy noises and when I wake up I eel really difficult to go back to the sleep. So, what did you do at the cat in the late night ?

The same here. A couple nights before it was rain and the sound of the thunder and the lightning wake me up from sleep. I just pull the curtain and get back to sleep. (^^)

Even if the thunder and lightning could be a bit bothersome, make me awake from sleep but I really like when its raining. The cold makes me easily fall asleep. That is why its not a big deal to me.(^^)

We switch off all our appliances every time we sleep for safety so we don't get scared when there's thunder or whatever. Anyway, every early in the morning my mom would watch morning shows and whenever it's time for celebrity news I would instantly feel so awake and not sleepy anymore. No matter how early it is even if it's just 5am or 6am, I would instantly rise up when I hear the tv showing celebrity news. LOL.

I have automatic current supply regulator which control the current and helps to cut of the line when heavy current is passing through it. They works well but still I just used to off all the switches. So that I don't have to worry anymore about the appliances. Do you have current or voltage supply regulator ? Did they helped you ?

If my children wake up, I usually wake up too and go and see what's going on. I will soothe them and then go back to sleep. Or if the house alarm goes off, I wake up and switch the alarm off, check out the zone that went off, wait for the alarm company to call and then go back to sleep.

Usually children are worried about the incidents like thunder and lightning. They usually used to approach the parents to stay away from the afraid they have. Do your kids used to cry when they saw such natural incidents like lightning or thunder ? How do you deal with it ?

I am a pretty sound sleeper so it would take a very loud storm to wake me up. I think I have a bigger problem going to sleep than I do staying that way once I get there.

Well, do you used to get proper sleep at those times ? How do you adjust with the heavy lightning and the thunder outside you ?

I will shut my windows and go right back to my bed. I would not stay up because there is no need to stay up when i find out the noise was thunder.

I think it is not good to stand or sit on outdoor especially when there is heavy thunder and lightning. I think it will be nice to sleep well inside the thick blanket . I did the same on the last night

One thing that made me get up from my sleep is my urine. I really have to go. I must not stand on it if I can't. I really should get up. Sometimes, I can stand it for a long time but still I have to get up because of my u.t.i. :( I haven't experience getting up because of a huge sound. :) Happy mylotting.
