they never seem to amaze me.

The best Thunderstorms I've seen were in Tucson Az during the summer thunderstorms. Lightining that races across the sky, very awsome from MT. Lemon :lol:

We do not get many thunderstorms here, but I do love them we we get them. My all time favorite thunderstorm that I remember was when I woke up one morning for my flight lesson and took off heading to Olympia to practice some holds. By the time we were heading back a huge storm grew and it was the most awesome site I have ever seen, probably even better because I was up 5000 feet in the air getting a full view of it. Whenever lightning would flash our ADF (a flight instrument) would point towards the lightning so we would know exactly where it was.

I have flown through a few small thunderstorms too, and it is very turbulent, kind of fun :)

The one other spectacular sight I remember seen was that same year when we took off and we were above a low cloud deck. So we could not see any ground beneath us, but we could see all the mountains because they were above the low cloud deck. But there was also a huge thunderstorm off by Mt Rainier that was very very huge, and on the other side of the sky it was completely blue sky, which made the cloud look even darker, and meaner. Anyway it is hard to describe, but I wish I had a camera because it was awesome the way everything was setup and would have made a good photograph.

That's cool, the freakest weather I saw in Tucson was when it snowed in January down there, I was amazed that it was snowing that far south. Of course the snow evaporiated as soon as it hit the ground but the flakes were the size of dimes and nickels. But I do miss the snow of Pennsylvania, it was always so much fun even as an adult to go and throw snowballs at people, espcially if they weren't use to thorwing snowballs. My girlfriend at the time, was up visiting me from Alabama and that was the most snow she has seen in her life, but it was just a regular Pa snow about 6 to 8 inches. So we were out having a snowball fight and she was getting so mad at me for running and picking up snow at the sametime as running. Then making the snowballs on the run and also throwing them at her still on the run. While she had to stop pick the snow up make it into a ball and then throw it and then start running. Not as good a time as I was having :D

That is pretty cool. I like snow too, but after awhile I just want summer to come back. Skiing is pretty fun, but kind of expensive.

After spending the last six years mostly in the desert of the south west (arizona, california) I'm ready for all four seasons, not just the alittle cold, warm, hotter than hell, and back thru the cycle. It seems that summer here in the desert just takes a break for three months or so.

The summer here in the Seattle area takes a break for about 9 months or so. I really miss the sun, and it has started getting grey and rainy again here, so it looks like summer is over. I am already depressed and cannot wait until next June. The thing that is kind of boring about our rain is it rains for like 24/7 and it is very very light. Enough to keep everything pretty wet and enough so you cannot really do anything outside. I would rather have a huge thunderstorm drop all the rain in about 30 min, then it turn sunny again :)

:lol: sounds good to me. The bad thing about where I'm living now is it gets flash floods. They have really poor drainage in the desert.

I think Flash floods would be cool, until things got damaged. I like all that kind of excitement :)

Like the hurricane that is going on, I think it would be fun to go through that again as long as nothing seriously bad happens, or something expensive gets damaged. When I was small we used to get pretty good wind storms in the Fall and our power would go out usually like 3-5 times a year for a few days. I always enjoyed those days as we would have to cook on the firestove and have candles and laterns and stuff. Outside you could hear the trees moving around and all the wind. I really enjoyed it!

Nowadays it doesn't seem to happen as much, plus we have a generator if it does go out. Secondly I didn't have anything like the Internet back then so I wasn't depending on the power as much. If it went out now I wouldn't be able to go online, so there is more at stake now! (Well I could possibly go online after generator is on, but usually our cable goes out if power goes out which means still no internet).

A huge branch fell down in our back yard. That was the extent of it for us, besides a lot of leaves everywhere.

Well I was meaning usually people who don't go up on ladders allot will tend be more careful then usual when up on a ladder. But walking around the house, that is something you don't even think about. Falling out of bed and dieing is also up there on the list of falls. Come to think of it so is dieing on the toilet. I know you don't think about that one to often. That is how the King left this world, and allot of the elderly. Has something to do with the nervous system and having a main nerve running near your backside. But that is enough out of me on the multitude of ways to die in your own home, sleep tight. :D

oh, so if your over 60 becareful around the toilet :D
