We kept the doors closed and the verticals drawn.  The heat wave had been the week before.  It was fine and only 2 nights.

Distant thunder and a bit of lightning for almost an hour. I'm waiting patiently for a storm to arrive, hopefully.

Thunder is rocking my house right now at 1:15 in the morning. It's beautiful!

I had some late last night -- the whole house shook shortly after I got to sleep

The night after my sister-in-law died, I slept in her house to keep an eye on the animals.  I laid on the couch and covered my head with a sheet like I was in a morgue (though I also had stuffed tissues up my nostrils because of the stink).   Then, a thunderstorm came through.  I have never experienced such a loud, sudden, violent storm.  I always liked thunderstorms, but this one frightened me.  In that house, it was scary.

You guys ever play ambient recordings of thunderstorms? I sometimes have but I find it's not the same.

I've heard that when W.C. Fields was dying his friends, knowing he loved the rain, sprayed a hose on the roof and banged garbage can lids together to simulate a thundershower for him.  :bluesad:

Gee, when I'm on my deathbed I wonder if I can convince my friends I am into seeing bunches of fake pirate treasure maps released on helium balloons?
What does not kill me makes me stranger.

Yes; crickets and wind too. I agree it's not the same but useful for mixes intended to invoke a mood.

I love after midnight thunderstorms. The best are early morning storms. We haven't had one in a long time though.

It's 10:33 in the morning now. It's dark and thundering.  :thumbup:

We just had a nice but way too short thunderstorm. Rainfall was intense for about 35 minutes, it was pouring like crazy. This was our second storm this week!

09:55 pm here, another small thunderstorm at the moment.

For the past two weeks we had rain almost every day and 2-3 thunderstorms each week. Loving it. Last night around midnight we had a thunderstorm and in between the thunder I heard nearby nesting storks clapping their shoebill. It was kind of strange and definitely a first time hearing this during a storm.

We have also had thunderstorms nearly every day for weeks, including right now.

I try to swim every day between 5-6 PM, but we seem to either have a thunderstorm or the threat of a thunderstorm at that time every day this week, and last. Fingers crossed for today, though.
