my questions. Was this a false awakening? also, the scaryness of this dream was the storm and the darkness and the scene overall. but you cant stop it like a dream monster can you? how do you get out of a nightmare that is about the scenario, not the monster?
Sometimes I get weird creepy imagery in a lucid dream, but I wouldn't call it a nightmare. For me, a nightmare is a dream in which I am ABSOLUTELY PETRIFIED! One time I was in a graveyard and there were zombies, and although unpleasant at least I was in control. Not all lucid dreams are rainbows and sunshine.
I know what you mean about the feeling of a nightmare. I was lucid in my house once, and there was absolutely nothing to be afraid of but for some reason I was feeling paranoid and panic about something. Like general impending doom. It didn't last too long and it is rare for me so I don't let it perturb me from lucid dreaming.
Also this has gotten me wondering, why do i ususally become lucid during nightmares? well i think because the intensity of emotions is so great, our mind just becomes conscious.

Perhaps it is emotion or perhaps you just wish it wasn't real and just a dream and then realize that it is.
A few weeks ago I had a dream in which my cousin was dead and I could see his dead body. I told someone else (not sure who), that "don't you wish you could just wake up from this and find out it was all just a bad dream?" Then I realized, it IS a dream! I told the other guy that, but he was still upset as if it were real. Then I said because it is a dream, I can do this... and I brought my cousin back to life and all were happy.
Perhaps bad dreams make you lucid because you wish to yourself that it was just a dream and then question it.

Nope. You *knew* it was a non-physical experience... so it's, at the very least, a lucid awareness experience.
The reason why you were getting "blown around" was, in my opinion, due to your unfocused mind. Robert Bruce has a concept he calls the "Astral Wind"... it blows people around seemingly randomly from place to place, he doesn't know what causes it, but I do... it's the unfocused mind. Or in some cases, a stray thought causing it.
Enjoy your experiences!
