July 18, 2014, is World Listening Day.
At around 18:00 dark clouds appeared, and we had a brief shower. When I heard thunder, I dashed out to my front parch with a microphone and a recorder. I missed a few loud claps of thunder, but I managed to record a few minutes of rain and thunder as the storm receded to the east.
