Tim3P0 and I have house guests this weekend, and last night, in addition to The Dark Knight and Doctor Who, our entertainment included a really great storm. We even paused the good doc to shut off all the lights and watch the light show out the windows for awhile. I’ve always loved storms. It seems that there is something inexplicable in humans that draws us toward destruction. I don’t understand it, but I feel it very strongly. Yes, I am fully aware that it is ridiculous to become excited by a tornado siren, and idiotic to run outside looking for funnel clouds, yet I am unable to stop myself doing these things.
How do you feel about storms? Freaked out? Fascinated? Indifferent? This would also be a good time to share any good storm stories you might have.
