Thunderstorms!

I was shaken awake by the sound of thunder and heavy rain. But I'll take a natural alarm over a mechanical buzzer any day.

Thunderstorms command respect. It's humbling to know that heat, moisture and unstable air under the right atmospheric conditions can create a punch-packing storm. But it's even more humbling to consider that all storm systems begin life as microscopic specs of dust upon which water vapor condenses to form clouds.
