Brontide

  Brontide

<Bron-tyde>

distant thunder; lake thunder;

An unexplained rumbling noise heard in the distance.

We heard the brontide and decided to head for shore.

Memory trick:
Bron reminds of brontosaurus.
Tide reminds of a wave tide.
A big tide

Used at work:
The ride was like a brontide.
