Run around the house screaming hystercally the world is coming to an end
Run outside and enjoy it....... We do live in the high desert and are thankful for each drop and storm

Probably watch by the window, or keep working if the power stays on. Funny enough we did see lightning at 11pm last night.
Las Vegas, NV
Head out to my sunporch to watch!
Make sure all the windows are closed and unplug cell phones and laptops. (I don't trust surge protectors)
I'm usually still up around 11, so I'd check to make sure the house is secure, calm down my Sheltie, and then try to get a good night's rest unti I can get a better look at things in the morning.
Hope it's not like the Big Ice Storm of December 2013.
We have extreme thunderstorms here in SW Illinois, so we're not unprepared. Having said that, we'll inspect the basement for moisture, check the windows, and eyeball the roof for missing shingles. Then we call the appropriate services if there are damages, and go about our routine.
Roll over and go back to sleep.
I just watch out the window.
I'd go out to see if I can get a picture of the lightning, I love how it lights up sky and the city at night.
Close our windows and sliding doors, then check the radar via internet and have a flashlight handy to find the rest of our storm gear if the power goes out.
Send that storm our way please, we're in a drought here in San Diego, CA!
But to answer your question, likely I wouldn't know about the storm, because I'm asleep at 11pm most nights, I get up at 5am for my Miracle Morning routine. Ironically we really did have a thunder & rain storm this morning at 5;45am (lasted about an hour) and I gave thanks!
I would check for damage and hope that we do not lose power.
I generally watch radar pretty closly no matter what time the storms are headed through.
I turn off all my computer and then I have to comfort my dog who is afraid of thunder.
Head to the beach to find a TV crew with someone being blasted by wind and rain with lightning striking all around, saying, "Don't do this, we are professionals."
