A quick story of sounds I can hear right now. It is raining in Melbourne.

Sounds I can hear right now

Ktsccchhhhhhhhhh....ktsccchhhhhhhhhh....ktschhhhhhhhh.....

Cars constantly pass by on the wet roads.

Hmmmmmmmm....p'ding p'ding....p'ding p'ding

Trams pull to a stop and let the city's workers alight into the rain.

Paht....paht...paht...

The bamboo slaps against the fence.

Screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeecccchhhh

A car leaves braking too late.

Tinkle tinkle tinkle

Glass shatters on the ground.

Snowing here in Alberta, we had no snow, but suddenly got a 6 inch snow fall in 1 day. (15 cm).

I don't believe it is possible to hear snow fall.
Thank you for the noises, Marion. How about the blaring of the cops siren, right behind you?
