Thunder- Yes, but not until this year. I mentioned it during some of the more severe storms, a few months ago. Every time I mentioned it, and asked if
it sounded different, I would simply get a response of, 'No, sounds the same as it always has.' That answer would be accompanied by those strange
looks of ~'What are you on?' (That was mostly family members.)
Honestly, I believe they are probably correct. I had not heard anyone else mention that the thunder now sounds differently than it has in the past
(until now). I had just attributed it to most likely being another effect, that comes after years of working around loud machines and listening to
loud music. I have no doubts that I have lost some of my hearing. I am reminded of that every time when all should be quiet, but instead of silence, I
hear that oh so pleasant ringing.
I am in the U.S., but a bit east of 'Tornado Alley.' I have often been close, and I have seen the after effects, and the devastation many times, but
I have never actually seen or heard a Tornado. I have heard others' say that they sound like a freight train. This little detail, has actually caused
me to get a bit freaked out, a few times this past spring. Since the thunder sounded differently to me, than it ever had in the past, there were
several times I thought that I might have been hearing a tornado that is right outside, and not thunder.
In a way, it sucks to have never experienced being inside a tornado, because until I am, I will never know for sure, exactly what it sounds like.
