Despite being a killjoy for those who enjoy a beautiful day, thunderstorms are just as beneficial and enjoyable to witness as a sunny day. For those who do not agree, give a spell of continued heat, humidity, and drought a try for over a week and see if I am wrong. I'm sure plants and animals would say otherwise. Repeated thunderstorm presence does put off the vim and vigor beautiful days provide but you would be surprised at the resulting nourishment the environment suddenly gives in return that you can bask in through the greater greenery, providing more oxygen output.
