In 1967 on a ship crossing the Pacific Ocean to England via the Panama Canal, an isolated thunder storm could be seen in the distance. It was traveling at great speed across the ocean. Birds, caught in its swirling wind and rain were being buffeted around. It was an amazing sight as we were hundreds of kilometers from land at the time and also bathed in brilliant sunshine on the ship and the horizon beyond.
