I have a question. Does anybody who isn't me, when faced with a storm of sufficient intensity that the rain is falling in sheets and the thunder is loud enough that you can feel it, think "ooh, I must go out and do my shopping now while the weather is still nice" or am I just terminally strange?

Well, I would consider the weather to be better than normal, but I wouldn't go shopping in it, all the useful food will get damaged on the way home.

But I think you are anyway.

If I actually had any shops nearby to go to in a thunderstorm, I'm pretty sure I would. Otherwise, I do regard stormy weather as nice.

On an unrelated note, if you haven't seen this one already you might quite like it. :D


I sometimes think it's time to go out and play in weather like that, but not to run errands: a bunch of what I'd shop for might be damaged, or its packaging might, by getting soaked, and I don't want to walk into a seriously air conditioned shop, like many in the U.S., while soaking wet. (I lost a perfectly good baguette to a rainstorm between the store and the subway entrance, a few years back, because I had no umbrella and it was sticking out of the grocery bag.)

I'm going to have to go with "both".

Nope, it's "I must go out and dance in the rain while it's storming because EE PRETTY"

I don't know how many times I had to be dragged inside out of lightning storms when I was growing up. Once I had to be fished out of a wading pool, where I was lying on my back gazing up at the preeeetttyy preeeettyyy sky.

Anymore, I mostly just get dragged reluctantly away from windows. "I'm already indoors, what more do you want from me?"

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand I hit the wrong reply-to button. Because I am nothing if not technically brilliant.
