Question of the day.

Do you enjoy thunderstorms?

My answer:

Yes and no. Yes, because there is something exciting about them, I don’t know, I’m probably weird… I mean, I’m weird for sure but probably also in this respect. πŸ˜€ I love the sounds of storm, sometimes it makes me feel kind of slightly high when I hear and feel the storm. I also liked storms as a kid when I was very interested in all things radio because it would often carry radio stations from a far with itself, that would never ever be reachable in my region in normal conditions, so I always liked to search for such things straight after a storm.

I dislike them though because sometimes they can be really scary, and in any case, I guess no one likes the idea of something being damaged due to lightning or someone being struck with it. Also often storms screw up the Internet, they did especially when I lived in the country as a child, our house was rather high up so it was also an additional factor and we’d usually be affected in this way after a storm that there would be no Internet and sometimes for quite a while, and sometimes power would go out too. These days I also don’t like storms for additional reasons. We’ve had only one storm this year so far, just a couple days ago, and, as it happened, when it started out, I was doing a piece of writing on my computer, and I realised that now that I have a desktop computer rather than a laptop, and no real surge protection, I’d just have to put it off and turn the computer off until it’s over, if I don’t want something to get fried. πŸ˜€ While it wasn’t a problem in that case, I can see how sometimes it may be, when a storm would interrupt something more important that I’d be doing. Another reason why I dislike storms these days more than in the past is that Misha sometimes gets scared of them, and when Misha is scared, that doesn’t make me feel good.

You? πŸ™‚

  1. I enjoy the thrill of a storm and the way it cools the hot summer air! But I also see the danger in them, and it’s fretful. My dad lost his hearing because he was enjoying a storm on the porch. I was outside with him, as was my sister, but he must’ve been in the exact wrong place, directly in alignment with the telephone pole out front that got struck by lightning. It breaks my heart, and if I could go back in time and change one thing, it would be that. My modem got fried from that lightning strike, and I had to pay about $100 to get a new one, but obviously my dad made off much worse. That aside, I love thunderstorms! I think they’re sort of exciting, as long as nothing too dreadful happens!

  2. I’ve never enjoyed thunder storms as they occur. As they gather and strike their light, my nerves are always frazzled. I find hope in thunder storms because once the darkness passes, new light wakes new beginnings.

    1. 🀣 How creative! πŸ˜€ Yeah, I also prefer when they’re at night, less people are outside, less electronic stuff is on so it feels safer sort of, and makes a bit of an atmosphere. Though on the other hand it’s not fun when someone’s windows aren’t tight enough as then it’s hard to sleep in all that noise and light.

  3. Yep, I used to! I love reading when it rains ❀ Until… I watched the movie "Parasite". It really changed how I felt about the rain. hahaha
