A freestone stream is a stream flowing over various size rocks down a fairly steep gradient. Think of the photos you've seen of people fishing on streams in the Rocky Mountains. It's one of my very favorte pastimes.
I live in New Mexico, and the sound of any rain will bring me outside to listen to it, because it's so infrequent.
Thanks for your timely questions.
"A freestone stream is a stream flowing over various size rocks down a fairly steep gradient."
OK, now that is a good sound! Takes me right back to camping in Connemara or Kerry in the middle of nowhere, just listening to the stream all night. Best lullaby ever!
"Think of the photos you've seen of people fishing on streams in the Rocky Mountains."
No, you lost me again. Don't think I ever have seen those photos!
Being Irish, the rain never had the novelty appeal to me. But a good thunderstorm is pretty rare, definitely worth opening up the door and standing to watch.
Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.
I grew up in Pennsylvania where it rained frequently. But now, in our drought-stricken adopted home, even a tiny drizzle is welcome. During violent thunderstorms, people in Albuquerque are often known to rush out into the storm to the nearest arroyo to watch the flash floods rush down. Hydrologists, engineers and geolgists all try to guess the cubic feet per second. (Would I make this up?)
