People freaking out over this stuff, and we're amazed that it's not normal everywhere.
it is as normal everywhere as it is in Tennessee. everybody thinks their weather is special.
120 degrees, 700% humidity 50 weeks of the year is pretty special to me
Special is one word for it.
Special is PC for retarded
And retarded is PC for Auburn fan.
One week of 60s and Bam! 90 degrees
We are experiencing a heck of a storm tonight. Over 12 inches of rain in the last four hours and still going. I saw rains* like this and harder for longer during Harvey, but I’ve never experienced an electrical storm like this - we’ve had periods as long as 3-5 minutes where the thunder doesn’t stop at all. Then a small 30 second break before beginning a new period.
*edited. This autocorrected as twins before which was wrong but hilarious.
That's insane. I'm not sure what nonstop thunder like that would do to my dog and never want to find out. We have fairly wicked storms here, but not persistent thunder like you describe.
It has finally calmed down. Just normal rolling thunder now. But still lightening every 20 seconds or so. Still rattling the windows every minute. But not that eerie constant rumble.
I need to find one of those maps of recent lightening strikes.
It’s died down now but it’s crazy dense when you rewind the clock.
My dog goes straight into a panic when she hears the first rumble of thunder. She knows she's not allowed on the couch, so she expects me to sit on the floor always in some kind of contact. If I take my hand off her, she either pulls my hand with her paw or gets on my lap.
It's awful. Mine is similar. He's a big boy (95) and will try to dig through the floor/walls if not being held. Also, there's nothing quite like a dog drool bath.
My lab doesn't notice, my jack russell goes under the bed
Mine is about 80. She's a huuuge baby.
Mine shakes horribly at the first sound of thunder (which he hears long before it is audible to me), so I always know when a storm is coming before it gets to the house.
He then crawls under the couch and lies there till it goes away. Same with fireworks.
Yep, mine will start pacing about 15 minutes before we even know.
