Is he the one that lied about thunderstorms?

Fun fact: Thunderstorms don't have to involve rain. They could involve snow instead. Other fun fact: When you're in a place where that happens, you start to wonder if nature itself wants you dead.

Going to attempt using the full editor since my Quick Reply dealy didn't go.

Those apartments are amazing for watching thunderstorms. I was in building 20 when we lived there, and there was nothing to block the light show from the balcony but a field full of cows.

Probably sitting down after a long day of birthing. If this was in October, they'd be sitting down after a long day of artificial insemination.

They wouldn't be sitting down so much after a long day of traditional insemination.

The way the lightning lights everything up for a brief moment is magical, and even cloud-to-cloud lightning creates beautiful spectacles in the sky. Even driving in one, stuck in traffic, I'm at a good, happy place.
Living in Charlottetown, we had some absolutely incredible thunderstorms. Nothing we have here in Ottawa can compare.

Summers in Charlottetown are so hot and humid most of the time(I didn't think it was possible for the weather report to reach 100% humidity without rain, but here we are), it starts to feel stuffy after a while. Sometimes before it starts to rain I'll get a headache, though I've been told it might just be... all in my head. A nice big thunderstorm always seems to release the pressure buildup, and get the stuffiness out of the air. Clears my head as well. It's just a really good feeling, immediately after a thunder storm.

Denton County is under tornado warning. Could be positive news, though I see no rain clouds anywhere.
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

You don't have to have rain cloud to have tornadoes. Tornadoes happen because of wind fields. It's just that they sometimes happen in thunderstorms.

No thunderstorms here anyway. Some really hard stuff happened further up north, though, closer to the Oklahoma border, based on the radar returns.

A nice little thunderstorm came through early this morning. It's amazing how far away thunder could be heard. A faint flash of light was in one case followed up by thunder a good 15 seconds later, which works out to about three miles away. Others were much faster.

I fell back to sleep after a while, but it was still a very pleasant change from all the missing.

I woke up sometime early am to an insane downpour! Was still going at 6 when the alarm went off but thankfully slowed to a sprinkle by the time I left about 6:50
