during a thunderstorm, don't...
talk on the phone
take a bath
stand near a window
but, during a tornado i'm supposed to get in the bathtub???
i was terrified of thunderstorms as a young kid- i remember the time my mother had to slap me as i was hysterical from a close lightning strike but, after my first experience with a tornado, i gained some sort of understanding and respect for the weather and have since observed it with awe and wonder
we're experiencing thunderstorms tonight in portland-few and far between, but always welcome
