I'm in New York State and I love all the noise and sounds of a good thunderstorm. I do NOT like the damage of course that they can do.
I've always loved "loud" weather. Even when it's just windy out and the leaves on the trees move...I love those sounds especially if I'm in bed and can hear it thru open windows.
We moved back here ten years ago and we did not have as many thunderstorms in the past ten years like we have so far this year.
