There is only one thing I like about summer:



I've been fascinated with thunderstorms since childhood. I could sit and watch a storm for hours, its like staring into a campfire, same hypnotic like effect for me.

Forecast is predicting heavy thunderstorms this weekend. I can't hardly wait  TeddyR

Any opinions or thunderstorm tales can be shared here.

I'm with you. Whenever a storm is rolling in I sit in the front yard in a lawn chair and take it all in. I even like the smell of the air. Then CRACK! BANG! Roooar!  Cheers

You might not have to wait for summer much longer. I swear the last few years around here I have heard thunder in winter. First time it happened I literally could  not believe it. It just did not happen in my area. I mean i was like   Buggedout Buggedout Buggedout

Now,  it is happening about every other year now. Soon I guess it'll be every year.

I have too. I heard it in 1970's as well. I heard it lotsa times. This is Michigan, so we always got weird weather.

I was sitting in my front yard one afternoon, and a storm had hit. So I'm checking out the clouds and CRACK! A bolt of lighting hits the tar road between me and the neighbors house! Scared the s**t out of me! I ran in the house.
Tiana says- "What?" I says-"Lighting!" She says-" What you doing out in the rain?"

We sometimes have thunder in winter. This isn't unusual, at least not in my neck of the woods.

We have thunder during snowstorms once in awhile.

In 2015, a lightning strike destroyed a house up the street from me.

We had distant thunder and lighting on Saturday evening, our "big" storm hit Sunday around 3 a.m. I was actually awake as I had slept late Saturday afternoon a couple of hours. Anyway, pretty decent storm. I was sitting at our open kitchen window leaning out a bit and watching. Lasted about an hour.

It's been raining all day and there's still distant thunder. Glad things cooled down a bit. The heat was unbearable.

I love rainy days, rainy nights, even thunderstorms as long as they're not too severe, but my state has had a rough year, storm-wise. We usually average twelve tornadoes a year, and in a two-month period there were forty-eight this past spring, including thirteen confirmed in one city in one evening. Back in March a funnel passed just west of our house and I watched it drift by, kind of lazily undulating under its cloud base. Made for a jittery ride. These things come in spurts and in 1974 120 tornadoes hit regionally in a day. My Dad was getting in from school and tried to stand in his front yard and watch but my grandma and my aunt grabbed him and dragged him to the basement. We actually have been lucky to have mild weather the last few years.

I haven't seen a good thunderstorm in years.  Used to see them at least a few times a year when I was a kid but there hasn't really been one in the last 10 or 15 years that I really can recall.  Sure there's been a little bit of thunder and/or lightening, but nothing that was really memorable.  I miss them.

Our entire neighborhood lost power for 48 hours last week... or was it the week before?  Outage was due to freak summer storms that whipped thru NJ and blacked out much of the state.  We have had thunderstorms every couple of days.

If the temp and  humidity were  like they are in my area now I feel for you having no electricity.
