I love the thunder boomers too! I used to go out & run around in them but I have slightly more sense now. They are still energizing. My partner gets absolutely "wired" by them. He too, stays inside with me now that we live in the "Lightning Alley" part of Florida. The rain could slow down here a little, but it doesn't seem likely until at least October.
Dreams have NO limits. If you can dream it, you CAN do it!
Another storm lover here! Someone, a long time ago, told me people react differently to the change in everything from barometric pressure to the change in thecharge in the air (ions). I *always* get a charge (pun somewhat intended) from an approachng storm.

You've all stated so eloquently I have but to acknowledge your corroboration of assertion!! ~ys, luvs um too!! :) Used to watch the hurricanes move into the east coast, floated my Camaro into my front yard lol. Saw my 1st & only snow/lightning storm in KS.
Its all splenderfious when nobody gets hurt, glad you and yours are safe.
I, on the other hand, am a storm wimp. Part of the reason is that, as a child, I got hypothermic at the drop of a hint of rain. I have gotten better in recent years, but there was a time when a camping trip in the rain resulted in me being a lump of whimpering jelly hiding under a plastic bag in my tent and hoping the tent did not collapse.
On time, about 8 years ago, I was camped at the edge of an area where a tornado passed close by. My tent DID collapse, and I spent the rest of the weekend wet and shivering, but most of my stuff got into the car before it was totally unrecoverable. I did recover, with the help of a LOT of friends, and that is actually the last time I was truly afraid of the weather. But it will be some time before I am COMFORTABLE with it.
I overcame my spiritual obesity, now for the physical!
It always makes me smile to see, hear, feel and smell such an amazing reminder of the power of mother nature - she stops the world in it's tracks, and I adore her for it. I'm all tingly just thinking about!
Oh it is nice to know I am not he only one that draws strength from storms. I have a special spot that I love to go on the coast and soak in the storms as they come off the ocean. I also get so much energy from the winds. It is like it clears out all the clutter that is hanging around in my head. I guess you could call me a real airhead. Lol
Have fun rejuvenating and revitalizing yourself. Thanks for sharing.
I am the same way when a storm comes. I love it, alot of people think its dreary but I think its beautiful. Storms relax me so much, I miss having a covered porch because I used to love to sit out on my porch and watch it storm.

There's a storm moving in. The air has freshened, the wind has picked up, the sky is black and the air is charged with electricity. I can't help myself. I get up from my desk and go outside, around the office to where the wind is not blocked. It blows my hair from my face and I turn my eyes to the darkening sky and drink in the energy. I'm alive, and excited, and so in touch with everything around me. It's so rejuvenating. I draw so much strength from a storm the energy makes me feel like I can do anything.
