  • no. the lightening can hit your house and be conducted stronger through water. my dad had me terrified of it by the time i was 8.

  • Nope. I don't even like to use the bathroom if it is storming. I won't talk on the phone either. Granted, I am afraid of storms because my parents' garage has been struck by lightning twice and two trees in their yard have also been struck.

  • During thunder, sure. I've only seen lightening overhead here once, and I've lived in this area nearly all of my life. It mainly seems to stick to the mountain regions.

  • We have dry lightning storms here. I love to go outside (under a roof) and watch the lightning hitting everywhere and listen to the thunder and feel the reverberations in the air. So, no I don't take a shower, I'm outside in the storm!

  • depends on how bad the storm is. If it's not too bad I will, but if it's really bad no way. Last yr we had a really bad storm and my son fell asleep with the channel changer laying against his face and I was on my computer and daughter had her cell phone on her lap. A huge bolt a lightening lit the sky. I got zapped by my computer (very lucky it didn't get fried), daughter got zapped by her phone sitting on her lap and my son woke up to ask why the channel changer bit him. Now I turn off my computer and unplug it in storms.
