    Some people can sleep through anything.

    Janis, thunderstorms at night are the best sleeping weather….But there is always that one that’s too close and freaks you out….I’ve only been struck by lightning once…That’s plenty…(Top of Mt. Audubon, CO, in ‘71). My advice? Pay attention to the sign that reads "Don’t go beyond this point in inclement weather"…I wish they would have phrased it "Go past this point and lightnin’ gonna getcha!

    My dad and I had to lay flat on the ground once in a mountain storm. Our hair stood straight off us.

    My best friend slept through a military jet crash only 2 blocks from his house! His sister woke him up, and he was the first person on the scene.
    Fortunately, no one was injured, and the pilot was a hero who ejected safely at the last second. He guided his jet away from three nearby gas stations and it crashed in the middle of a street on a short block with only two houses on it, both of which were unoccupied at that time of day.
    The block was immediately off of busy, 5-lane PA Route 611, three blocks north of the Willow Grove turnpike exit, which is one of the 5 busiest turnpike exits in Pennsylvania.

    That is some fancy flying. Congratulations to the pilot.

    I recall reading something a few years back… 3 people on a mountaintop dead from lightning. There was a camera nearby. The last photo showed 2 of them, grinning ear to ear, because their hair was standing straight up.

    They’re best for something else too. ;-)

    My wife can; except when her toy poodle whines about something.

    Thanks to some hearing loss thunder doesn’t register with me the way it used to. But my cat Sandy always slinks off to the basement when it’s stormy.

    That which does not kill me…often pisses me off.

    Thunder does not usually distress me, but I spent a couple of years in Miami, and the booms during the daily Summer afternoon thunderstorms there would wake the dead.

    Our son slept through a S Cal earthquake of 6.something and didn’t have a clue why everybody was running around all excited.
