Here is a sound recorded from inside my Tahoe SUV. I had just arrived back at the ranch when I noticed the rain and wind had really started to get heavy. I parked in my driveway and pulled out my Sony PCM D-50 and started recording. I really just wanted to get the heavy rain drop sound hitting the roof when all of a sudden the rain turned to hail and the wind really picked up.
As you can hear in the sound demo, the wind was hitting the side of the SUV pretty hard and the good sized hail was pounding the car. I felt the Tahoe rocking from side to side and it was hard to hold the D-50 in a steady manner. I was really glad there were no trees overhead to fall over. This wind had some of the strongest gust I have ever felt during the winter. Enjoy! -Frank
Remember: If you can, always be packin’ a recorder, you never know when duty will call.
