Note that fear of thunder is often treated as silly; after all, it's just a lot of noise. Fear of lightning, on the other hand, is [[http://www.straightdope.com/columns/040827.html absolutely justified]] -- and [[http://www.snopes.com/horrors/techno/phone.asp confirmed]] by ''{{Website/Snopes}}'' -- but by the same token, since you hear the thunder ''after'' the lightning, it's good news: it means you weren't hit. NothingIsScarier may also come into play; as Alfred Hitchcock once said: "There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.".
