Don't like our thunderstorms? Just remember that when we are getting the big boomers, we are protected from the big blows. So when you rave about those disgusting hot, humid, sunny days remember that high pressure is going to direct the hurricanes our way.

Coming from Colorado, I have seen some hellacious summer thunderstorms, with the baseball hail etc.
But this past weekend was some of the most intense lightning I've ever,ever seen.
(And I am a total wuss with lightning--guess I better get used to it.)
There was a waterspout off Amelia Island, too, I saw the film of it, and one touched down at Flagler Beach.
If having these storms means we are protected from the huge ones, well, okay.
I'll deal with it. It's good to get the rain and the breeze, but the lightshow can be kinda scary.

I'm a wuss when it comes to lightning and crashing thunder so I grit my teeth. The rain is so welcome - and even lightning plays an important role (it releases bound-up nitrogen in the soil which benefits plants). But it is scary.

I'd rather have the thunderstorms than the 'big blows" any day, however! And there's something oddly comforting about hearing the low rumble of thunder off in the distance. Can't explain it, it just is.

I know what you mean - sometimes when the thunderstorms have gone I am a little disapointed.......
