    I love thunder, lightening and storms but only overnight so no-one is out in it. Poor kids! It is so warm over here but stuffy :( we need a good storm to clear the air. The wind is picking up though.

    Gotta love those Springers. Mine loves to go out in the rain too.

    I absoluteyly love those storms to. Think they are exciting as long as I'm not stuck in one.

    I hate it with a passion!!!!!!!!

    My dogs shake continuously, dig up the carpets wet themself and my BC gets so scared he has seizures.

    i get in a state if I can feel a storm coming.

    On fireworks night, my vet prescribes us ACP for the dogs...I dont react I stay calm as I know me being worked up only makes them worse, but inside my guts are churning for them :(

    One of my clearest memories from when I was a kid (about 8yo I think) is of walking home from primary school one day when suddenly the heavens opened and down came a monsoon! Black sky, raindrops bouncing two foot high coz they hit the road so hard ;) thunder booming and lightning shooting across the sky. I got absolutely soaked through. It was brilliant :D though I do realise it can be very scary for some ...

    Thankfully none of our cats seem bothered by it, which is A Good Thing.

    where abouts are you? it is just starting to ebb away here now. I do love an electrical storm though, make my lights flicker. My cats dont seem to mind to much, they just lay with me untill its over :)
