Thunderstorm over Bowen Island

If you enjoy the pyrotechnics of a thunder storm, the event on the evening of August 29, 2013 was the most dramatic I’ve seen since I left Winnipeg in 1990. Here is a 20 minute stereo recording of the event. To experience it fully, play it at high volume with some good speakers.

For the record, here is how the storm appeared on local weather radar.

That weather information is available at Ballantyne Mountain Weather Resources.

The audio file is posted to I recorded it in stereo with a Zoom H1, mp3 128kbps with a ‘dead cat’ wind screen. I was on a dome of land called Millers Landing on Bowen Island. The recorder is facing North. Mt. Collins is on my left, and across Howe Sound are the mile high hills that form the east wall of this fjord. I suspect that the hills form part of the soundscape. The line of clouds that made this storm ran from North to South and were moving eastward. Play this at high volume to experience the event.
