My name is Raúl.I am an American Citizen born in Puerto Rico.I have an exreme fear of thunder and lightning or acute brontophobia.

When I traveled to N.Y.and watched a baseball game with my family in 1986,after a nice day with a bright sun(I do not remember the teams were taken on)a severe thunderstorm came by.When all that happened,I covered my eyes because I did not want to see the flashes and I did not want to hear the thundering noises,until the storm passed by.

When I worked at Supermercados Amigo/Wal-Mart,when thunderstorms pass by,i wanted to hide into the restrooms.

And,when I drive a car and I see dark clouds facing me,I always U-turned so I do not pass the dark clouds of rain,thunder and lightning,whether is night or day.

So,as a result,during the summer in Puerto Rico,I watch the channels 2(Telemundo),4(Wapa T.V.),or 11(Univisión of Puerto Rico),even the Weather Channel,because I am extremely concerned about weather issues and getting caught on showers and t-storms,isolated or scattered.

Due of that fact I am extremely scared of T-storms,I do not play golf nor go to the beach or pools during summer.

I play golf after the hurricane season from June 1 thru November 30(December thru May).

When it comes at home,I always hide in a bathroom,and when it is overnight,during a sleep,I wake up and I hide in a bathroom.
