So funny because I love lightning, I think it is incredible, but when the thunder cracks I jump LOL ! As for the hail, the destruction around here on Xmas day has made me more than paranoid. We are still waiting to get our car fixed. It lasted a few minutes and caused months of pain and financial loss to many. Not just us. Anyway, lets hope no super cell size hail tonight eh ?
I too love lightning, however the fear of it striking my house or nearby is crazy. Not because of the lightning itself, but the deafening crack of thunder.
It's a really stupid fear, since the thunder is VERY unlikely to do any harm, but it's still there. I love watching lightning off in the distance, but as soon as it's overhead, thats enough for me!!
Heck, I even go to the effort of creating my own lightning
As for the line of storms, it's about 1100km long (Going from about mid Tas).
The green-ness in that pic is cool as Meso
