To his defence, Australians have no idea what "real buildings" or "insulation" are like.
*Put that into perspective; I imgine it'd feel to us like camping, only year-round.

How would you like 100+ hours over 4-6 weeks where it's "not wise to be outdoors," because of an ever-present threat of lightning.

Yeah, but after a few short summers where they are shortened further by dangerous skies,
you'd probably eventually grow tired of staying inside another 100-300 hours from Jun-Aug too.
(unless you're a madman, and would love to risk getting ZAPPED!!! )

*I occaisionally watch t-storms too,
but seriously a lot of the time wer're under a storm watch,
the skies and winds are somewhat blandish so there isn't much "fury" usually,
however there's the risk that it could suddenly change.

actually i love thunder and lightning!!!! wish we would get more our yard has over 1000 palms and some of the coconut palms are 45 to 50 foot tall so the odds of the lightning hitting me is slim!!!! i will take 100 hours of stormy weather with thunder and lighning and serious rain than a prolonged drought!!! it's getting realy dry and i don't want to lose 22 years of planting and maintainence because of drought it just cost to much money to water all these plants and a chit load of time!!!!!! bring on the stormy weather with a lot of rain.... down here in the tropics it's refreshing to go out in the rain it never realy gets that cold only in december... and even in december it's not what i would consider really cold.. beleave me i would get sick of rain if it rained all the time... but the longest that it has rained on st croix is 3 weeks and that is a rare event and i've been here my entire life..a solid week of rain would be nice right now no matter what package it's delivered in!!!!! lightnin wind thunder it's all better than drought

Today is a very good day for making me angry.

The whole UK is getting a huge thunderstorm outbreak, even scotland, and everything has totally missed my area again. Either that or passed here as a weak shower only to intensify after leaving. It really is horrible. Still no storms this summer!

Same here! Storms seem to split once they get towards Green Bay, part goes north to Door County, the other half south to Sheboygan, leaving Two Rivers dry in the middle!

Not only could we use the rain but I'd like to see some lightning and hear that roar of thunder!

In NYC it is actually nice, finally! Sunny and near perfect blue skies. 73F at 9AM, will rise to lower 80's by afternoon. For some reasons the summer decided to start at the 4th of July rather than Memorial Day, but better late than never.

All storms missed Lincoln again. I am seriously considering emigrating to Texas/Florida somewhere with plenty of good storms.

You have got to be joking!. Melbourne's water supply dams are now at 26% and also recorded it's driest ever January to June period in nearly 160 years of record. Just 126mm fell, average is 307mm. If anything, you are obviously in the minority as many other Victorians want rain - lots and lots of it.

Just looked at Melbourne's forecast - just a few showers about and "light patchy" rain which is hardly anything to throw a tantrum over.
