What would you listen to during…
A world-class thunderstorm?
We’ve been getting a wave of thunderstorms that’s been rolling through town for five plus hours now. The storm that started it was what’s called a gullywasher, a brief but intense downpour that floods the gutters. Then about an hour later the REAL storm started: a tropical downpour that was so dense you couldn’t see across the street. It lasted for 30 minutes, flooded the lower end of the little plaza in the center of town, probably drowned the ducks in the duck pond in the park by the plaza *grin*, and provoked a power outage that sent me home for the day.
When the big storm rolled in, I was listening to the Boys of the Lough, Live At Passim. The track? The Darling Baby. Not inappropriate, although I wish this baby’s mum would come home so he’d stop crying! (This place gets 19 inches of rain a year. I think we’ve gotten two or three of them today.) Then I put on Celtic Fiddle Festival, Johnny’s Big Set, to listen to Hurricane Bob. When I got home after the power outage, I put on Sailors Oer Da Rooftrees. Then company came over, so I had to be good and play nice mellow background music. (I put on Patrick Ball, who blends nicely with falling rain.)
So if you were sitting out a storm like this, what would YOU listen to?
