Seriously.  You hear the weather getting bad outside, the weatherman starts saying 'residents of Plano, Frisco, etc. take cover immediately', and then the sirens start to blare.  Yup, instant panic attack for me.  Better than a shot of caffeine straight into a vein.  I'll be up all night now.

Well, the scary weather has now passed and I'm okay...if, yet again, a little shaken.  I hate the weather here, and I'm not sure I'll ever adjust.  If I had a basement or some stable form of shelter, I probably wouldn't be such a wimp about it all.

Yes, when I was driving into work tonight in north Tarrant County, the electrical storm was amazing. Scary too, of course.

Sorry it scare you, though. :(

I'm a huge wimp when it comes to these storms. This was a scary one though - a very loud, windy thunderstorm (you could feel it in the floors). I flipped on the weather just in time to hear the weather guy give coordinates of where the rotation of the storm was located (right where I live) and two seconds later the sirens started going off. That was the last straw. I was a freaked out cookie. :)

Yikes, don't blame you one bit for being a "whimp." We met a tornado last year here in memphis, and good heavens, it was the scariest experience ever for me. So glad it's moving away from you!

They seem to be siren-happy here. I think the sirens make my fear worse. It was a scary storm though!

I'm so glad you made it through. I would have been so scared. We're supposed to get the nasty storms tomorrow. Nothing scares me as bad as tornadoes.

They scare me too. I panic. Quite possibly my worst phobia.

I hope the weather is okay there! Stay safe!!

Scary! I'm glad the storm blew over without producing a tornado.

I grew up in Kansas and have a lingering fear of thunderstorms/tornadoes. I still can't drive during a storm--I'm a complete danger to everyone on the road. And, strangely, I'm utterly fascinated by supercell storms. I track them in the spring/summer on various weather/stormchaser sites. I guess chasing storms vicariously gives me an adrenaline rush without the fear.

All of this tornado business is still semi-new to me and I'm not likin' it one bit. I think if I had some sort of shelter, I'd feel safer. I think the sirens are the worst part.

I'm glad you're okay. It's nice living in hurricane country - we can see them coming at us!

I hated living in earthquake territory, though. meep!

*hugs back*

Nope...I'm not a fan of hurricanes or earthquakes either!

The tornados can just happen so fast. It goes from 'eh, it's a thunderstorm' to 'oh shit - take cover immediately' in a matter of minutes. Very scary. I need to learn not to panic.
