Sudden Storm

February 12, 2010 by Richard Wright in Journal, Life

So, I was in the study, headphones in, enjoying an atmospheric audio play involving Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, and friends.  It was a dark and stormy night.  There was thunder crashing and lightning flashing.  I thought the audio mixing was a little off, because I couldn’t really make out what the actors were saying beneath the storm effects.

Except, of course, the audio was enhanced by the actual storm that had sprung up outside.  Crashing, bashing thunder, a brutal downpour, lightning, flooding – even hail, and not measly flecks of it either, but big, bouncing chunks of ice.

As is our way, we stood in it for a bit, and breathed it all in.  We like storms, and we really like being surprised by them.
