Talking Excellent! Thunderstorms!

I love thunderstorms, and from what I can smell, there is going to be one on in 30 minutes to 2 hours ( weird, I can smell them coming )! Just saw some lightning and heard some thunder so......

Re: Excellent! Thunderstorms!

I know what you mean.The weather here in Texas is so much different from home in California. Here it is obvious when it is going to rain cause it gets cloudy and really windy. At home it just randomly with rain and not very hard. Here it rains super hard and then stops. I also really like thunder and lightning.

Re: Excellent! Thunderstorms!

I love it when it rains here, we also have big heavy thunder storms, with lots of thunder and lightening.

Mishka gets a little confused, I taught her to say, mommy the boom booms are gone.
When she hears the thunder starting she says, the boom booms are gone. I am now teaching her to say the boom booms are coming now now.
I wonder if she will get it in the right order one day........you never know

Re: Excellent! Thunderstorms!

I love thunder and lightening too!

Thankfully none of my brood bother a jot!

Except Boots the dog.....

The second it starts up she paws to get out.

You will see her through the window prancing into the middle of the garden, stopping, looking at the sky, barking the bark she uses when Olly the other dog is annoying her to tell the sky to BE QUIET! Waits for the rumble to go away and then pads in, satisfied!

Next round of thunder, we repeat the process.....

lol!

Re: Excellent! Thunderstorms!

The storm finished last night . Good while it lasted. The budgies are fine with it and I went on a creature hunt. Found a tree-frog in the toilet and finally discovered what makes the webs on the windows.
I have an emergency now! Scary Hairy has escaped.

He found his way into the shower room and dropped onto my towel!!! BTW, he's about the size of my dad's hand!!

Re: Excellent! Thunderstorms!

Awwww . Why not? Honestly, the only things I have in my room now are my pet stick insects, because Scary Hairy escaped and the chicks I'm raising are outside now. Apart from the odd white-tail and red-back, of course, but I've only ever kept one of them as a pet.

Re: Excellent! Thunderstorms!

Glad you enjoyed the storm.I don't think I could handle a "scary Harry" or "hairy ". I am a wimp, Ratzy! I run into those big camel spiders sometimes and one of my assistant claims I turn white and green simultaneously which clearly can't be right! And Von, when it thunders one of my dogs slinks into our bed and shakes and whimpers. Can Boots do a mental health house call?

Re: Excellent! Thunderstorms!

Thunder was the first time Echo said anything to me in content! He was about 10 months old and after several cracks of thunder he said "what was that" I almost fell out of my chair... So I said thunder after a few of the cracks and ever since when there is a storm he will tell me it's thunder!

Re: Excellent! Thunderstorms!

I used to love storms too. Then two things happened.

While delivering pizzas one night (back in college) I got caught dead center in an F2 tornado. I truly thought that was going to be the end of me. While I grabbed the seat of my truck for about 90 seconds (seemed more like hours), the wind ripped my headliner out. (it's the fabric on the underside of your car top...both of my windows were down...no A/C in my ol' beater truck.) The truck tried to tip over several times, but thankfully...did not.

The other thing is, I became a homeowner. Now all I see when I look at a storm cloud is repair bills and insurance claims. It really changes your perspective on things.
