Gene Hill once said that thunder may be the oldest sound to reach the porches of man's ears.
I'm listening to pre-dawn thunder. I walked out into the dark yard and saw lightning to my east, south, and north. We are comfortable with late afternoon thunderstorms in these latitudes, but early morning storms are a rarity in this season. I went to the weather maps looking for a front line, but all that shows is an unse3ttled air mass above my parish. Nothing of a classic front signature, just an unsettled air mass.
Strange. With the heat we've been experiencing, any rain would be a blessing, but the afternoon promises to be hot, and now more humid than ever.
