Great topic!! I absolutely love thunderstorms, especially at night when it's dark out. As long as they aren't severe, they're wonderful, and I try to enjoy each and every one that comes through. We get a decent amount here in Minnesota, so that makes me happy. Actually, there is one headed straight towards here as I type this.
I like most everything about them, the rain, lightning, thunder, it's all amazing. I can do without the tornados, hail, and severe lightning though, as that damages things, hurts people, and messes up people's lives. We just had a severe storm come through here a few weeks ago, and there is a stretch of farmland that got absolutely pummeled with large hall, destroying a lot of the crops. I noticed today on my drive home from work, that one of said fields was plowed by the owner because there was too much damage. Makes me feel bad for them, as that's their livelihood.
Anyways, rain and thunderstorms are my favorite type of weather. Thanks for this topic!
