Thank you, I'm happy to share the experience. It was a great rain, I just 
felt like hitting "Record".

Sure, here's some collected recordings I've made with the Snowball of 
ambient weather in three cases, and of a running refrigerator compressor 
motor (by request of someone either on this list or the ct-collective 
list, I can't remember at the moment).

B.L.U.E. Snowball, high-gain firmware, Mac Powerbook, using Ambrosia 
Software's WireTap Pro, 44.1, mono, 16-bit.

        (turn up loud, it's subtle - it's snow falling. The mic is
        sensitive, but not *that* sensitive*.)

http://www.subscapeannex.com/other/newyearsdawn.aiff (same as above in 
original AIFF)
http://www.subscapeannex.com/other/newyearsdawn2.mp3 (22min, mp3)

Made the first new year's piece while it was still too dark to read 
outside, second one about five minutes after the end of the first. There's 
a hawk hanging around, some dripping from the rain last night, etc.

Finally, I left the mic recording when I didn't realize it once, and 
recorded several minutes of myself sitting in a creaky chair and reading a 
book. Luckily for my embarrassment factor, I do not seem to talk to 
myself much.
