Question of the Day:

What is the best part about storms?

    So based on this question, I assume the bad weather that hit us in Birmingham yesterday hit you earlier.

    I like the way storms look; dramatic cloud formations in the day, lightning in the distance at night. Very pretty.
    I also like the way things feel after a storm. The weather usually changes (often for the better in this part of the country), the pollution and pollen and dust all get washed away, and everything seems very clean and fresh afterwards.

    I love how wonderful it smells after a storm. I really enjoyed going to Target after the horrible storm last night in Joplin, no one was there, I got decent parking for the first time ever, and it was just peaceful outside and inside. Even Kael was well-behaved! 🙂

    i suppose i still love storms. i used to love them unconditionally, but i lived in “tornado alley” for years, and they became a stressor for me-more than once houses less than 1 mile away were destroyed, in some cases entired neighborhoods.
    last night’s storm was particularly and unusually intense imo tho. the actual storm was pretty short and minor, but the atmosphere for it seemed to build for hours. maybe it was because it was our first spring storm?
    my electricity flickered and shut my computer down, so i opened up all my windows and my front door and sat watching it. i liked how blustery it blew in, with billowing sheets of rain, and leaves blowing everywhere. the lightening was very vivid, the thunder strong and loud, and the sky looked pleasantly strange as it passed thru.
    in general i think i like the feeling of the air before and after a storm the best.

      I agree on the love/hate storm relationship. There were floods all over town yesterday. I live in a bottom floor apartment, and an apartment 20 feet away from mine flooded. I was worried.

      I have to admit that I love when the power goes out, and you have to open the windows and light candles. It’s quiet and breezy and wonderful. It makes me wonder why I never do that after a storm when the power is actually working.

    I think I like everything about storms. Beauty. Power. And the reminder that there are some things in life that are in God’s hands and there’s nothing I can do about it. I don’t worry or stress about storms at all. It’s essentially a waste of time & emotional energy. Worrying won’t change anything. All you can do wait and see what happens, and then deal with it.

    I have two things… 1) the excitement from the first sounds of the distant thunder. 2) the dark blue color of the sky if the sun is at your back and you are watching a storm in the distance.

    I’ve been in CA too long. I miss storms.
