I used to believe that thunder happened when God was bowling. Lightning meant he made a strike!
Until I was fifteen, I used to believe that if you stand near the windows or you are touching a glass when there are lightning, you turn into stone.
I used to believe that a thunderstorm was caused by angels bowling, that it would thunder when one of them got a strike!
I thought when it was raining God / Angels were crying & When it was thundering & lighting God was mad at his wife. .. sounds good to me still!
to keep me from being afraid of thunder, my dad always referred to it as "Mr. Thunder"
when I heard the expression "roll of thunder" my image of thunder became a giant rolled-up rug made of grey clouds with a grumpy face. whenever the thunder came I imagined the rug rolling out...
Lightning and thunder were produced at the garbage dump.
i believe that using gold give electric shock at the time of lightning.so i didnot wear gold when rain starts.
When i was younger, me and my little cousin got scared of the thunder and lightning. So my older cousin said that it was God taking pictures so we should always smile.. Haha, every time there is thunder and lighting i still smile, not because i think god is taking my picture but because i suddenly get flashbacks of those happy times! Suddenly remembered due to the awful weather...
when i was young my best friend's mom would tell us that when it rained god was crying and that lightning was god getting mad and trying to hurt us.
I used to believe that thunder was the clouds crashing together. I imagined the clouds were like bumper cars, and that ghosts were driving them.
I remember being firmly convinced that thunder was the angels bowling, lightning was the bowling balls striking each other, and rain was God watering his garden. These were the only explanations that made sense to me back then.
I've never been scared of thunder or lightning until the day my mother told me it was santas elves hammering toys togather.
LOVED this site! My Mom used to set up our plastic bowling pin set in the long hallway in our house when it was storming, and when we heard thunder it was because an angel had bowled a strike! Years later I learned she did it because she was frightened by storms.
I used to beleive that Lightening was the angels fliping the light switch on and off, and the Thunder was God yelling at them not too, like my Dad did to me.
When i was little, my dad would tell me that when it thundered that my grandma had just bowled a strike in a game of bowling with the angels! :) He told me that she loved bowling when she was alive and that it thundered so much cuz when she played she was wicked good!
When I was little my dad told me when ever it thundered it was my Grandma bowling a strike.
Thunders are created because of the collision of clouds
When I was younger, I used to think whenever thunder storms occured, I thought it was God getting angry.
My mom used to tell me that thunder makes the grass grow. I didn't realize it wasn't true until I was in college :)
When I was younger, my grandparents told me that when you hear thunder, it's because the Angels in heaven are bowling. So, after my aunt died, I always thought she was bowling when a there was a thunderstorm. It's a cute story that I will surely pass down to my children.
