One of my favorite camping trips ever was when a friend and I camped on seven mile island. We put food and dry clothes in garbage bags, a playmate cooler of ice and drinks tied with a piece of rope, and a large sheet of visqueen plastic and paddled over to the island from Sheffield boat ramp on two air mattresses. We built a shelter from the plastic and bamboo poles. That night one of the most beautiful thunder storms I ever saw rolled up the Tenn. river. We laid in our shelter and watched the storm. We actually stayed dry. When I think of camping, I always remember that trip.

I love storms...love to watch lightning hit the water, from a safe distance of course. Smile

My neighbors think I'm a nut (and I guess they are right) but when we have a storm, I'm usually on the porch till the rain starts blowing in on me.

I'm usually screaming under a table. Storms is one of my uncontrollable fears.

Must be a guy thing. Hubby does it too.
I think mine is psychological. I literally am crying hiding in a corner. Maybe I was born on a stormy night. Who knows.

I love to listen to a gentle rain fall. It's the lightening and thunder that send me for cover.

Not that I am comparing you to a dog lmm, but my dog gets freaked out by storms. She follows me around and trembles and will not be consoled. See looks at me like..you poor fool can you not see the danger here? After the disasters we've had recently I am much more conscerned than I used to be. When dealing with an f-5 tornado, all the precautions you can take are useless unless you are in a strom shelter. Basements or all the walls possible between you and the storm are not gonna be much protection.

I have a friend that helped do some recovery work in Tuscaloosa, and he some pretty scary stories to tell.

No problem. I have one cat that hides with me and another one that goes under the bed at the first sound of thunder. I agree that I'm a goner either way, but I can't stop myself from shaking. affraid
