A flight that turned wierd

Primary tabs

Anybody ever catch what i call a "sardine can Plane"Its a charter flight, all silver metal with no symbol or drawings on the sides.I booked a trip to Jamaica on it just because i had to get away quickly. (no, not from the law).I had the very first aisle seat after the pilots.No first class.We took off on time from Chicago's Ohare. It was a non-stop flight to Mobay.The first 3 hours was smooth sailing.All of the sudden the captain informed us that there was a thunderstorm just hanging over Sansgters airport. He said "we can keep circling and hope the storm passes or head to Kingston.He said since we were low on fuel, we will be going straight to Kingston.I thought we would be going around the storm. It felt like we went right threw it!That plane was jumping up and down a lot. Big movements,This was my first storm flight and every time the plane dropped what felt like 30-40 feet I would grab the arm of the woman sitting next to me.I couldn't control my reflexes.When i looked out the window it was all white clouds and bright flashes of light from the lightning or thunder or something!This lasted for a 1/2 hour!
