I like a thunderstorm as much as the next person - especially now that we can sit in our pack porch and watch them - but the problem is that NC does not get a nice relaxing thunderstorm. 90% of the time, thunderstorms are categorized as "severe" which is frequent lightning, winds in excess of 60 MPH, and torrential rains. It's a little intimidating, to be honest. My poor dog is scared to death of thunderstorms, fireworks, etc. We bought her a Thundershirt and it seems to help. It's not a cure, but she isn't as neurotic during a storm when she has it on.
