Our neighbor used to make her son go in the basement whenever there was a thunderstorm. My mother didn't like me to be on the phone or take a shower because I may be electrocuted. And tonight, Rich is out at his ridiculously late hockey game, I've already read all my RSS feeds and the weather is screwing up DirecTV so I have no choice but to go out on the porch and enjoy the storm.
I read once that some areas of the world don't have thunderstorms. I don't want to live there.
