Bang Rumble Thud (chomp)23 September 2007
An apple tree of some unknown variety stands in our neighbour’s back yard, with some branches reaching out over their garage. The garage roof is partly asphalt shingles and partly a corrugated fiberglass.
When Newton’s most famous theory bears fruit, the Rube Goldberg-like sounds we hear from our window are the BANG of the apple hitting the roof, a modest RUMBLE as it makes its way over one or both roof surfaces, and a THUD as it introduces itself to our driveway. Sometimes later in the evening additional sounds may result, such as raccoons ordering the buffet.
