A couple of night ago we had a huge thunderstorm here in Finland. This is one of the things I love about Fall. But very often when the lovely weatherman on TV promises that “Yes, a very dangerous storm is coming.” – it never is a proper storm. Yes, maybe it will rain a bit but there’s no thunder or even one single lightning.
Couple of nights ago, however, as I was sitting infront of my laptop the thunder began. I heard it. Then I saw the whole sky light up – like it would have been daytime instead of midnight. A couple of seconds from that it happened again. The sound became louder and louder – the storm was right above our house. It was amazing! Just 30 minutes ago we had another thunderstorm, this time it was more about the heavy pouring rain and hail than anything else.
I understand why some people are afraid of thunderstorms. I however love the feeling of being at the mercy of nature. There is something very beautiful and humbling about it.
