I didn't hear anything last night here in CT. It was quiet but it must have rained cause the street outside my window looks wet.

I used to love thunderstorms until this spring. Now with all this climate change we are having, the storms here are getting more intense and scary.

The thunderstorms around here are developing into down drafts and they are fast, dangerous and destructive. The times we have had them, people think they are tornadoes -- they do a lot of damage.

My son and I were in the car coming home during the first one this spring -- it was fast and furious and really scary. There were huge branches coming down in the road in front of us every few feet; I couldn't see a thing, but I was too afraid to stop and couldn't see to pull over. We were only in the car for about 15 minutes and by the time we got home it was already starting to clear up.

It was scary and I don't remember weather like this happening here in CT since I moved here in 1989. So while I used to love sitting by my window watching lightning storms, I'm not so happy about them these days.

Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it.
