... like some sort of old fashioned bowling alley just above your head and down comes the torrent. Lightning flashes across the clouds and forks down in sizzling bolts to the ground, far off like a fireworks display and close up like a fearsome fiery snake followed immediately by a thunder clap that rattles every bone in your body.
