    Edit: the 5% chance of rain that was predicted has jumped to 100% and I now hear the sound of thunder and rain.:(

    Well I was putting together a post for my Knoxville thread - this time on Oak Ridge (The Atomic City!) - listening to Wilhelm Friedemann Bach (1710-1784), the oldest son of JS Bach, who also had a number of other talented sons, including CPE Bach & Johann Christian Bach. Dave :)

    Thunder and rain.

    It almost seems as if the sky sheds tears because my holidays are over. ;)

    Addition, almost 10 hours later: still raining, and now I hear wind as well. :(

    I woke up to the sound of rain falling onto my roof. It's still raining, and I can see it's windy too, but I can't hear it.

    You are up early! I forgot to tell you how much I LOVED your photos of the raindrops and the three suns! Magical!
    I hear my dog eating his dinner!:)

    Thank you! :)

    I get up at 6:00 am when I'm working.

    Now I can hear children chatting and one of my colleagues talking.

    The rain falling on the fibreglass roof of my garden shed. A light drizzle just heavy enough to be annoying.

    I am with you.

    We had a lot of rain this summer, and there's no change in September. :( But we're lucky. I've heard today that there are floodings in the South of Burgenland - again. Here, it's just rain, and tonight thunder, as a perfect complement.

    .Johanna, do you have a fairly new washing machine or fairly old? The old washing machine was moving around so much that we had to drill a strip of metal in front of it to stop it moving across the floor of the kitchen.o_O,
    All I can hear is my own heartbeats! Oh the house just made a settling sound &. My cat. :DEating!ji

    I had to purchase it almost three years ago. The old one stopped working. So I think this one is fairly new. :)

    Definitely new! I bet it doesn't make as much noise as the old one! It is so quiet here right now, that I can hear my heartbeat and even my breath! Oh, I just heard a bird but that has stopped too! PEACE HERE!
