Repetitive Thunderstorms

Our normal summer weather pattern includes a chance of afternoon thunderstorms. But we are stuck in a pattern of repetitive thunderstorms.

Thunderstorm #3 for the day.

Thunderstorm #3 for the day.

Living in the mountains of western North Carolina, we are accustomed to the grind of a daily thunderstorm. The humidity builds throughout the day until Mother Nature just has to release the pressure and drop some rain on us. But the key is “a” thunderstorm a day.

How many thunderstorms can we have in a day?

As we have mentioned many times, Frankie is not a fan of rumbling skies (or fighter jets flying overhead or any other loud noises), so he believes that no more than one thunderstorm a day should be allowed. In fact, he is lobbying to move to somewhere that doesn’t have thunderstorms at all.

Snow is fine, just not thunder.

Can we stop with the repetitive thunderstorms?
