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!
