I certainly do. I live in Texas, in tornado alley, and I enjoy sitting and watching them build and progress across the sky. It shows such awesome power and beauty and the more severe and intense it is the more enjoyable to watch (from a safe distance to be sure).

I am God Damned tired of them!
The weather in my part of Georgia has been rainy almost every day for the past 5 months.

What part of GA?

@hipchick57
Covington. And now it is more like 7 months of rain 4 days out of every week.

I love storms! I live where tornadoes are not uncommon.

@Bendog It does seem like that, lol.

I love the sound of thunder and the flash of lightning! I love looking at clouds with a green lining (ozone) and expeting hail. I love the wind and trees swaying and falling. I survived a hurricane on a tropical island. It was an adventure!

Yes! Most exhilarating!

From the moment I see the wind toss the trees and I know it is on the way.

Storm's comin'

There is barely a cloud in the sky!

Storm's comin'

Being from Louisiana originally, I have always loved the excitement of hurricanes, but not the harm caused by them 😟

1

Oh Hell Yes! I like thunder and lightn', the way it makes me feel frightened. l better knock - - - - on wood!

Finally just hit. Hopefully it brings a bit of cool air!

My storm looked wild but nothing happened. I was bummed ?

I love storms myself although I had a dog recently who freaked out over thunder, it kind of spoiled it for me. However I love sitting on a porch and watching a rain shower in the summer.

I do enjoy the sound of rain on the rooff, but I would avoid a hurricane.

As newly moved to Pensacola I'm not a fan either.

@hipchick57
Luckily, I live close enough to appreciate the rain from the storms coming from gulf coast hurricanes, but far enough away to avoid the brunt of the hurricanes.

I love sitting out on the porch during a storm. One time the lightning struck so close I almost lost bladder control. Lol

Yes. Storms are exciting and also make me appreciate my cozy shelter from them.

Yes, I love storms!!!! I was in a tornado when I was very young so I have a visceral reaction when the weather gets really crazy.

1

I’ve worked the aftermath of too many to get excited any more.

Colorado is having a nice break today from a long stretch of temps in the mid to upper 90's. Cloudy and rainy. Heat comes back tomorrow though.

One of the few things I miss about small town Nebraska is the thunderstorms which used to roll in across the plains during the summer.

I love storms!

I love a good storm with loads of lightning and strong thunder. Sadly, not one significant storm as of yet this year.

I have loved watching storms since I was very small. When I grew up I studied the science of thunderstorms and I love them even more.

A good friend of mine has made the study of severe thunderstorms his life's work - he is a great person to go storm chasing with.
