Thunderstorms can be fun

Watch your C150 climb at 2000 fpm shake around like you never did on the disco floor, duck the projectile vomiting from your PAX. All great fun!
The occasional lightning strike is great too! Means you get tranquil peace from the usual ATC chatter as all your radios go into crackle.
Lightning strikes are great for teeth whitening and giving your hair that extra body and lift as well making you look the part when you do take to the disco floor.
For you adrenaline junkies the icing buildup can be really amazing to watch and certainly adds a challenge to the handling qualities of the aircraft.
Above all when you come out of the CB you can always turn around and go back in for another go beats fairground rides hand down.
