I'm scared of thunder, and there's a thunderstorm outside. What should I do?

Let's look at it like the people who make our achievement testing questions do. For the bible portion, every year we get the same sample question:
Debbie was afraid of a storm. She was scared that the storm would flood the earth. According to God's promises, what should Debbie do?
[A] Call her friend
[B] Trust in God's promises
[C] Hide in the closet
[D] Sing a hymn

Gee, I wonder what Debbie should do (circles C).

Buy some earmuffs to block out the sound.

You should be scared if humans are modifying the weather, but if they are not and the thunder is caused by God, then you should listen intently every time it thunders, and think of how it sounds like God is bowling. Try to figure out how many pins he knocked down, based on the sound of the thunder.

I don't mind thunderstorms as long as they don't cut the power. I hate not being able to see.
Have no regrets.

Then he goes bowling.

I actually try to measure the amount of time it takes for the thunder to roll after the lightning. Sometimes it takes over 30 seconds. Real trippy.

Are you scared of getting struck or just the loudness (probably the latter)?
