Big Ol’ Thunderstorms: Love ’em or Hate ’em? [POLL]
Many of us in Mid-Missouri have been experiencing quite a few thunderstorms recently. There have been severe weather advisories, reports of 60 mph winds and the threat of hail in the area, not to mention the damaged trees, flooded streets and traffic accidents that come along with a good old fashioned Missouri storm. Despite all of this mayhem, I’m absolutely loving this weather, and I have a hard time believing that I’m only one out there who likes it.
Just this morning, I was awoken by a massive thunderclap that rattled my entire house. I love the sound of a powerful storm, how the thunder rumbles in your chest and slowly rolls away, leaving you with the sound of a peaceful spring rain until “KABOOM!” the next one sounds like it’s right on top of you.
I think it’s great, and I think I could sit and listen to storms like that all day. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for my dog, who is not a fan of severe weather. He spends most storms cowering in fear underneath a towel in the bathroom. I’m sure there are children and maybe some adults that hate these storms just as much as my dog.
So which camp are you in? Are you looking forward to the next big thunderstorm, or are you waiting for all of this to just pass us by and let the sunshine in?
