    Description:

    High Desert Thunderstorms has the vast, beautiful crackling of Southwestern summer thunderstorms. These powerful storms travel for miles in all directions with rumbles that feel physically and emotionally immersive. Plus, you receive many types of Texan storms with rainstorms, dry thunder, echoing thunderclaps, and much more. If you need storm ambiences that ripple across barren valleys, listen to High Desert Thunderstorms.
