Here's a stupid question I have yet to ask - does mobile get a lot of t-storms? I used to be afraid of them when I was little, but now I'm not even remotely afraid of them. I kinda like them now

Yes, definitely.

And I think most adults are not afraid of them ... unless they are stuck in the dark ages and believe it is God showing his wrath or something .

Mobile gets plenty of "pop up" thunderstorms during the summer. It can be nice and sunny outside and then all of a sudden you'll see black clouds and lightning which seem to come from nowhere. We do get occasional tornadoes too, but I don't think they're as likely here as they are in north Alabama.

I love the history of the city. The beautiful houses especially on Gov't street lines with oak trees. I also love the food.. Mobile has some of the best seafood in the country. The azeleas and camillas at the beginning of spring.

Really I just love my hometown.

Yes, and with our summer storms, as was said, they just pop out of nowhere and dissapear just as quickly. Sunny before and after (and sometimes during). If you have ever gotten caught off guard and hit with one of these whilst in a convertable, you know how spontaneous they can be.

I've never had a instant thunderstorm here or in central Alabama, but there's been a few every blue moon

Speaking of, any USA alumni or students here?

I graduated back in '96 with a minor in business. Out of all my classes some of my favorites were in business, especially business law. It's been a few years and a lot has changed, but I enjoyed my time there.
