Sounds to me like you're just another hammock nut. If I hear a crack of thunder I'm grabbing my gear and heading for my backyard. My wife thinks I'm nuts, but I just love riding out a storm in my hammock.
Some of my best nights sleeping in the woods have been during storms. The sound of the rain pounding on the tarp and wind rocking my hammock back and forth. I can never stay away for very long in those conditions.
