I love the rumble of thunder, the flash of lightning and the smell of rain on hot earth. I could happily watch the show for hours. Is it the electricity in the air that jiggles all my atoms around? There’s a possibility that negative ions in storm, and interestingly in the shower, make you feel happy. In digging around, I found this interesting article on storms, ions and psychology in the science magazine Nautilus.
