Imitate Some Weather: Using only your voice and things within arm’s reach of your computer, imitate some kind of weather. It doesn’t have to be long, but make it sound as real as possible. (2.5 stars).

For my audio assignment, I had to use something near and my own voice to imitate the sound of some type of weather. I wanted to imitate a rain storm. Using Audacity, I recorded myself making this rain storm audio sound. I just hit the Red Circle to begin.
I used my own breath to breathe near the microphone to create wind. I also had a cracker bag that I used to imitate rain on a window sill. I think it came out great! This is a great assignment since it is very random, but once I listened to it back, it sounded so real! I believe that stories that are both creative and random make such great stories.
