We've got lightning tonight, and I love to watch it....it's always been a treat for me, the wilder the lightning, the better I enjoy the show.
Astraphobia, sometimes called astrapophobia, is the fear of thunder and lightning, and I don't have it.
If I hadn't grown up in a secure environment I might feel differently.
A friend of mine's grandmother was killed by lightning INSIDE her house, while working in her farm kitchen (back in the old days). The family was leery of thunderstorms ever after.
Still, I like to watch it as it happens, preferably, of course, from indoors, regardless.
