Dude, Check This Out: Thunderstorm

Some of the best music is the music of the natural world. I was looking at many possibilities for posting--babbling brooks, bird songs, ocean waves--when I came across an old favorite. I give you a thunderstorm, thanks to Dan Gibson and his "Solitudes" series. It takes me back to an unforgettable summer storm on Trout Lake in 2009--and to magical storms from my early childhood. Feel the thunder, smell the rain, enter the magic.

  2. Nothing beats sitting on the porch and watching a big summer ts roll in. Gets the blood going.

  3. Personally I prefer to stand under something during a hail storm rather than catch it in my net, but hey that's me.

  4. Those are some wonderful weather shots! I especially like the one where the hail stones are hitting the surface of the lake (hope you had something over your head during that one).

  5. Glad you guys like thunderstorms, too. That one snuck up on me. I backed under a bankside tree, but the hail got through. It hurt even through my hat. But what a great experience. You should have heard the thunder!
