#639 – Thunder

We had a loud thunderstorm come through last night and my son had a hard time getting to sleep. He kept fixating on bad things that could happen in a storm. Then we started to pretend that Thor was out there protecting our town from space aliens. He changed from whimpering after hearing thunder to “Good one Thor!”

    I will now start using that line during storms to confuse/entertain people in my vicinity.

    Are you moving out from under the trees?

    1. Chris says:

      These particular trees, yes.

    That’s the kind of response I like to give. Forget lightning, the odds are too remote. Tornadoes on the other hand…

      Yes, I got over my fear of thunder storms when I was 6, but picked up a fear of tornadoes during one time we had a tornado warning in my county…

    Wait, are you a fan of SG-1? Thor and the Asgard protecting Earth from the Goa’uld!?

    1. Chris says:

      No, I was thinking more of the Avengers movie when I said it.

    Technically, lightning could enter your room, provided there was a hold to the outside. However, the bolt is more likely to strike the roof or a tree nearby.

    1. Peter Wolff says:

      There IS a conducting connection to the outside – the power line. Although a lightning entering your room this way probably won’t kill you, it will do worse: kill your smartphone/tablet/pc.

    You brought a smile to my face, just by imagining the smile on YOUR kid’s face.

    To make a kid smile and be happy during a thunderstorm is no easy feat. Good going 🙂

    That is some epic Dadding!

    Ball lightning. Ball lightning may come into your room though, or down the aisle of a plane, or drift spookily through the city streets like some aimless will 0′ the wisp.
