I sure as hell am! As an offshoot to the other Thunderstorm thread, i've decided to create this one as a counterpoint, I hope the creator of the other thread doesn't mind. I've found that ever since I was little, i've been afraid of lightning, and now as an adult, if i'm out walking (my main mode of transportation BTW) and it starts to get dark like a storm's coming in, I panic, and if it actually starts thundering and lightning while i'm out in it I CAN'T MOVE!! I truly mean that too, my muscles just completly freeze in intimidation and fear! It's the power that frightens me, being out in a thunderstorm, I can feel the electricity thick in the air around me, and not knowing if the next bolt has my name on it or not! I'm cool with it as long as i'm inside, that is the thing that has changed from when I was little. My brother, and even my parents tell me i'm nuts, i'm a complete wuss etc..., but I tell them "Well pardon me for being just a LITTLE intimidated by the sheer power and fury of mother nature!?" To me, it's foolish to just assume you'll be fine going out into a lightning storm, that's a very dangerous and reckless attitude to me, people get struck by lightning every season, it DOES happen, who's to say I won't be next? I'll tell you who say's, me! I will not get struck because I do not go out in lightning storms, period. I don't use the phone during them, and I don't watch t.v. either during them. Maybe I am a wuss, but at least i'm not a crispy fried one.
