Sitting on my back deck watching a MAJOR storm coming. Anyone else get pumped for storms???
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).
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 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.
