Few things can so succinctly remind us of just how powerful nature can be like a storm. As much as the Earth provides for us with water and food and shelter, it's not a sentient thing that's looking out for us. Powerful forces can take their toll on us at any moment, and storms are a constant, dramatic reminder of this. A simple summer thunderstorm is the kind of thing we've all grown to expect, and it can capture your attention easily and quickly. The wind, the rain, the sudden darkness all come in with a mysterious foreboding. Then the boom of the thunder and the arc of the lightning. It's all very intense and very emotional. And, if we're being honest, it comes across as very angry.
There are as many kinds of storms as there are ways to express your anger when you think about it. Some roll in fast and intense while others build to an intensity that seems otherworldly. Some are hot and oppressive while others are biting cold. Some can bring untold destruction and leave a massive swath of ruin in their wake. So how does your anger manifest? Is it a light summer rain or is there something more there? Let's grab an umbrella, take the quiz and see!
