When the air gets warmer and the pressure of summer heat forces thunder and lightning, here’s a new word to describe the sound.
Brontide: (n.) The low and rumbling sound of thunder at a distance.
It’s hearing the thunder on a hot summer night and watching the lightning blast across the sky.
The feeling you get when you can feel a storm brewing far away.
Brontide is the rumbling sound signaling that clouds are getting thicker, the air is expanding and electricity abounds.
Have you felt it?
