I used to beleive that the lightning, thunder, and rain would scare away all the monsters and ghosts around me. So I was never afraid of thunderstorms.

I used to have a tremendous fear of thunderstorms and I used to believe if I played with or touched anything black during a rainstorm, that it meant god would think I wanted thunder and lightning.

When heavy thunderstorms would come around and there would be lots of lightning, I thought that it was God taking pictures of people who did bad things. I told my little sister to never stand near the window when there's lightning, or else God might take her picture and get her in trouble. She was really scared about it and we'd both hide under the covers of our beds until the storms would go away. I eventually realized why I thought this--because an adult friend of my parents who was visiting during a heavy thunderstorm said that lightning was God just taking pictures with his camera in heaven. And then not too long after I saw on a TV show some criminals getting their pictures taken after being arrested for some bad crimes. They were black & white pictures. The lightning from storms would appear against a gray cloudy background. So naturally, I put all this together in my nutty little head. ;-)

When I was little and it would thunder. My grandma would say it was angel in heaven bowling. If it was lighting it was a spare and thunder was a strike.

I used to believe that lightning is God snapping pictures of us. Then our photos would be placed in Heaven's Hall of Fame.

As a 7 or 8 year old, I knew that water was a good conductor of electricity. I also knew that lightening was a deadly electrical source. Therefore, in my mind (was it told to me?), it was a big no-no to go pee in the toilet during an electrical storm because in some way the lightening could make its way up through the toilet through the water and then by extention . . . . I think you get the idea. During many a storm I found myself holding on until after the storm was over until I thought it was safe to go to the bathroom!

When I was little, my brother used to tell me that during a thunderstorm lightning would come out of the powerpoints and 'get' me.

To this day, it's something I'm phobic about, even though common sense tells me otherwise!

My mother use to tell me to be quiet during a thunderstorm. I never could figure out why she said that and now when it's a thunderstorm I make everyone in the house be quiet.

I used to belive thunder was the angels bowling. Whenever there was a big clap of thunder an angel had made a strike. I always celebrated for the angel. I would envision the angel doing the disco to flashes of lightning.

My dad listens to rock, so he used to tell me that when it thundered, it was God bowling against the sinners. You know, like the song. Angels and sinners play every day, every night. To this day I don't understand the true meaning of that song.

I used to believe that thunder was the noise that clouds made when they bumped into each other. I didn't realise this wasn't true until I was 24 and on holiday with my boyfriend and his family. There was a big thunder storm and everyone thought it very funny when I explained what I thought... thanks Mum.

I used to think that lightening would folow you up the stairs and zap you, and that if you had a cat on your lap during a thunderstorm , the lightening would find you.

When I was under fifteen I used to believe that people were hit by lightning because they did some bad things in their past live, so the sky came down to punish them..

While watching a thunderstorm with my 4 yr old son, we spotted some lighting in the clouds..after some time of watching this spot light up he said "That car up there in the clouds is turning its lights on." LOL! I'm sure you can imagine how absolutly adorable that sounded....
