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.

Here is a link to the same recording on a map: radio aporee ::: maps – Takano, Ritto, Shiga Prefecture, Japan
