We don’t have mountains or oceans around here, but we do have striking and colorful weather. A Midwest thunderstorm can be a thing of awe. This morning such a storm has been moving over Quincy, with thunderous explosions that seemingly could wake the dead.
Thunder is an interesting aural phenomenon. It varies in pitch from a low alto down to the sub-bass. It could be thought of as atonal music rollicking around the sky. And then the lightning flashes associated with the thunder! They can light up the entire sky, and of course there is the danger, which while really minimal, adds spice to the celestial display.
