This was a cool assignment. I used Audacity to make my own sounds to imitate the beginning of a thunderstorm. I made the wind myself, the rain was my fingertips on a Diet Pepsi can, and I also did my own lightning strikes. (Sorry could not figure out how to make thunder. Everything with my hands sounded too drum roll like.) Once I made the file in Audacity, I exported the track to be saved as a .wav and uploaded it into Soundcloud. Fun little assignment for 1 1/2 stars.
