A gentle rain is just that. whereas a heavy downpour could be called a rainstorm by some. Toss in some thunder and lightening and you have a thunderstorm.
Fair enough. Over here no matter how heavy the rain / snow is it wouldnt be called a storm without strong winds and lightning.

Storm to me is a Thunderstorm. Rain is rain or a shower. Little bit of snow is a flurry, and anything over a foot in Texas is a blizzard lol. Although, we have had what you'd call an icestorm before. One thing you probably already know is over here a LOT of words are misused or exaggerated.

Yeah I kind of got that impression. Average american seems to put super in front of everything. Some cali girl on youtube was making a sandwich and said she was "super stoked".

I mean, com'on, it's a sandwich. I like food as much as the next guy but if I was gonna use the word super stoked it'd be when someone served me 30 day age A5 grade wagyu steak. Not a peanut butter sandwich.

Joking aside I don't actually mind the exaggeration really. Its kinda nice to see people so positive about everything in a way. I think we are too far the other way over here. When y'all say 'super stoked' i'd probably say 'eh not bad'.

There is some story from WW2 or something where a British officer called the Americans over radio to report on the situation, and he said something like "we're in a little bit of bother", so the american dude took that as basically fine not taking into account typical british understatement lol. But they all died.

It's my car lol, I periodically have to wipe the web off cause it stops being sticky with so much driving and no bugs stick then then she rebuilds it better than ever!
I don't have the heart to dig her out fully, plus it's fun to see how large you can get them to grow she's about 1/3 the size of my largest lady, I'll take another vid for you when I get home of big bertha
They do hurt like an absolute mofo if you get bitten, won't kill you but lots of swelling and hotness. Tbf I handle quite a few and haven't been bitten in years
