In my 19 years of gaming a thunderstorm has never stopped me from playing videogames or setting up a new system, want to know why? Because nothing has ever happened to me during a thunderstorm Lol. No but seriously I don't know if you should, never had any problem like this.
Rip and tear! Rip and tear your guts! You are huge! That means you have huge guts! Rip and tear!
