A distant roar, a rumbling closing in. Beautiful.
Thunder is arguably the coolest weather around. No other forecast will have you expecting fiery bolts of destruction from the heavens, so we already know it’s good at marketing itself. Instant death, you say? Surely that’s nothing to worry about. Just take in the view of a beautiful bolt of lightning, frantically searching its way to a grounded point for sweet, sweet release. Shockwaves going through air and ground, signaling all nearby weather events that the big boss is in town.
But the more introverted variants are also a sight to behold! Those clouds that just rumble on and on, daring only to strike themselves, never quite reaching down to the ground. The clouds light up from within, giving us a few rare glimpses of the silhouettes of the gods that inhabit them.
Nothing beats the atmosphere set by dark clouds, a chaotic wind, and a deep rumbling getting ever closer. The energy in the air at those moments is so noticeable, you can’t help but feel alive and perhaps just a little bit giddy. Oh if only that state of weather could last forever.
But then we’d never get to see the fireworks and dance in the rain, now would we?
