When I was a kid I thought that when there was a thunderstorm the angels were playing a game of Family Feud in two teams of four up in heaven. God was hosting that game. I thought that whenever a contestant gave an answer that was not on the board and was a strike was when a lightning strike actually happened. I also assumed that the sound of thunder was the sound of the audience either booing to for an answer that was a strike or cheering for the family for winning the round. Rain came from the tears from the family of angels who were beaten.

My Grandfather used to tell me that when it thundered the angels in Heaven had knocked over their potatoe barrels and spilled out all the potatoes, and I always thought that that must be one humongous, gigantic barrel and a bunch of clumsy angels.

I used to be terrified of thunderstorms when I was a child. Then one night one of my moms good friends came over to babysit. There are one heckuva thunderstorm. She noticed I was scared and told me that thunder was angels clapping and lighting was God shining his flash light. It worked; I was never again afraid of a t-storm.

I used to believe (thanks to my mum!) that when it began to thunder, it meant that the angels in heaven were dragging around their furniture. I would always have a mental image of a bunch of angel pushing around a dining table because they wanted to rearrange their dining room!

When I was little, I somehow thougth that the sky had a solid ceiling. Anyway, I also thought that thunder was the sound of the sky ceiling falling closer to ground and that lightning was the sparks of the sky ceiling grinding ever closer to earth. For this reason, I was screaming my head off in panic whenever there was a thunderstorm because I thought that eventually the sky ceiling would fall right down to the ground and crush us all to death.

From an early age, I already knew that lightning was attracted to metal objects. But, I still didn't quite have all the facts straight.
One day, there was a storm outside while I was at home, in the living room, playing Mouse Trap. I was so scared to play the game because I thought that the little steel ball that came with the game was enough metal to bring the lightning crashing through the window and into the house.

One time when I was 6 and my cousin was 5, there was a storm. We were in our grandparents car and were arguing about what lightning was. I thought I was a lightbulb and my cousin thought it was a candle. Lightbulbs would make more sense then a candle, though!!

For a very long time when I was younger, I was terribly afraid of thunder storms because I thought that thunder was the sound of the barrier between earth and hell being broken and that lightening was the spark of that barrier being broken. I thought I had to sit quietly and pray during thunder storms so that the creatures from hell that escaped through the broken barriers won't come and get me.
