We had some incredible storms in Central Kentucky this past weekend. Saturday night and Sunday afternoon were full of thunder and intense lightning.
As crazy as it may sound, I've always loved storms. As long as nobody is hurt of course! I've just always been fascinated by them, enamored by them, and captivated by them. In fact, they are my favorite thing about summer.
Thunderstorms themselves are a unique form of beauty. They are so incredibly powerful and incredibly beautiful at the same time. I love how the rumbling of far-off thunder becomes louder as it gradually moves closer. And I love the way a summer night can become illuminated with all that magnificent lightning.
They also have a very calming effect on me. I sleep like a baby whenever it is storming. In fact, I have an app on my phone which mimics the sound of a far-off thunderstorm and I use it to help me sleep every single night.
The same cannot be said about my cat Ruby, however. The sound of thunder sets her eyes darting about and usually has her scampering under the blankets for shelter. What a wuss!!
Do you get many thunderstorms where you live? Do you enjoy thunderstorms? Fear them? Ambivalent toward them?
