What do you love about where you live?

It might rain cats and dogs, thunder and lighting to beat the bands, blow the car cover off the car, and even occasionally hail up but the buildings still stand !
Up until last year there was one road that we used to have a lot of clients in that area. That place is like Twisters Vill, if there is a storm, it'll get whacked. Several years ago I remember we were at the Churches mid-week service and the sound of the wind and thunder was some of the worst I've ever heard in my life. And that is a place where you can probably hear the music and singing down to the highway lol.
When service was over the Pastor told everyone they could stay there if they didn't feel up to leaving. It had to be at least 30-45min before we filtered out. I think the people that left probably wanted to see if they still had a house to go back to lol. On the way home we took that one road, it was seriously blown away man. Dark, any few lights there probably were out of power, there was trees down and debris every where and it was still storming. We finally had to turn around and take the highway after bumping into a crew trying to handle a downed power line in the middle of the road.
Where we live, usually doesn't get hit that bad... You might have water halfway into your shoes some days, or feel like a tumbleweed in the ol'west but it's generally safer then most other places in this city. Although to be honest, given the number of tornadoes per year in Georgia, I think I'd take my chances with the Hurricanes back in Florida if we ever moved closer to that on road lol.
I don't mind rain, I suppose it is strange but I generally like rainy whether; more adventure to travel. It's the tornadoes that worry me. Thunder and lighting I don't care very much for but I've never concerned myself a lot with it. I figure, if the LORD wants me dead, I'm as good as dead whether or nott I get hit by lighting. And if it ain't time to go yet, probably not a lot to worry about.
I don't really have a problem with death I suppose, I know we should always be ready to go but there are a few things I'd like to do/see in life first... The only thing of it, is if I gotta go, I'd rather not take any one with me and a twister is usually not that picky about it's targets. It's always been my expectation that I'll be as good as alone when the end comes, dunno why but that is my suspicion on the matter.
