when i was little my mom told me not to touch anything metal when it was lightening out, because i could get electrocuted. i took this very seriously and wouldnt touch silverware or doorknobs for fear of being electrocuted. i finally realized that she meant metal things outside, not inside.

I used to think that lightening was like a flashbulb, so you better not be doing anything bad or else the angels or God would see. So smile, just in case it's a picture. Also, if a flash from the reflection fo the sun on a car's windshield or other object would do the same. I did a lot of "freeze and smile" because I wanted to be remembered to be a good little girl who smiled a lot.

My mother always complained about the rain ruinning the pavimented roads and making holes in them. The idea that the water could make the holes sounded ridiculous, so I believed that when the thunders fell to the road, they made the holes.

Also, thats why I was very afraid when I was caught outside in a thunderstorm, regardless if I was in a car or in a building, the only place that was safe was my house.

When I was little I thought that lighting could travel through the ground and zap me in the house, and that if my feet were anywhere near the ground it would get me. So if a storm hit i had to have my feet elevated off my bed by my foot stool.

My dad used to tell me that thunder was God rearraning His furniture and lightning was a little kid in Heaven flicking the lightswitch on and off.

As a very small child one day, I was playing at being 'fairy thunder drop' this involved spinning round rapidly and singing about thunder and so forth. Shortly afterwards, a thunder storm started and I was absolutely convinced i had caused it. i cried for hurs ad never played 'fairy thunder drop' again

When I was little, my parents told me that if I walked around barefoot during a storm I would get struck by lightning. I still make sure I always have somthing on my feet when there's a storm, just in case.

I used to believe that thunder was the angels bowling, so I assumed a few other things, too. Lightning was either them having disco bowling, or somebody was dropping lightbulbs on the ground. And of course, all that bowling made them thirsty, so they had to have water! Rain was them dropping their drinks, and hail and snow was the ice in the water! Tornados were fans turned on, too.

I used to think I would die if I saw lightning or looked at It because I thought that it would pull me outside and hurt me

When I was small I thought that when it rained it was because God was crying because someone had dyed. Whenever it rained I thought to myself 'I wonder who dyed today'. How stupid was I!

when I was younger and it was storming at night, I thought that I did something terribly wrong during daytime and made GOD or Mother Nature real angry at me. I would lie in bed covering up/hiding from the lightning and thunder and pull all my stuffed animals around me so they could ''protect'' me! Sometimes I even hid under my bed and would sleep there! I even apologized to GOD and Mother Nature and begged for forgiveness repeatedly until either the storm stopped or I fell asleep first! OH BOY! was I ever an idiot!
