Love them or hate them? Or, don't really care either way...

I like a non-threatening storm, a little rain, a little thunder and lighting, but if it's a bad one, I can freak out a little bit and if I had a basement, would probably be hanging down there while it's roaring through. I'm not very fond of REALLY loud thunder either. This morning, one cracked so loud I almost had to be peeled off the ceiling!

How do you react when there is a threat of a tornado?

I curl up in the fetal position and cry.

I listen to the news and watch for updates.

The thunder this morning was awesome. There would be a quick flash, then a little after that the thunder would roll for like 20 seconds.

I went outside to see if I could spot it.


True story. It was when I was in MO. Tornado sirens went off. Radio was reporting the town was in the path. I went and told the other people in the apartment building. We took a radio and made sure there were chairs in the basement laundry area. I called a friend that I knew didn't have good shelter and told her to come over. Her aunt lived in the apartments too.

Then while everyone else went to the basement or was hanging inside I went outside to see if I could spot anything and watched the cops buzzing by. The cops were driving around town to see if they could spot it and warn people.

When the friend arrived, I was outside yelling Twister.
It was right after the movie came out.

I double check the distance to the nearest trailer park.

True.

That is a cool photo!


Woke this morning to cool sounding thunder. Storms are fun, if you're not at risk!

Been in a few good ones while on the boat the last couple of years.

If the storm is off in the distance, I like standing outside and watching, it's usually when its right overhead that I get a little freaked. Sometimes I can be brave and stand outside and watch if it's a little threatening, but if I see lightening that's a little too close to home, inside I go!

True. I would probably get the binoculars and watch a tornado as long as I felt I was far enough away and could get to the basement quick.

Oh!!! and avoid Stodge trying to drag me to the basement while I was still wanting to watch.

This is me too. My ex & daughter used to stay outside & watch all of it, I'd be in the closet with my purse & my jewelry box! Now, I just close the blinds & hope the power doesn't go out.

Always grab my purse and hide in the bathroom if it gets REALLY serious. I pretty much do the same now as you, close the blinds and grab a bunch of candles & our flashlight in case the power goes out.

I was a little late for work this morning, because I stayed curled up in bed enjoying the thunder and light show


When the storm started it took til the count of three for our younger 2 daughters to coming run into our bedroom. They still like to camp out on our bedroom floor during storms, which makes for hazards when you are trying to get to the bathroom in the dark
