In June we had a very rare (for us) middle-of-the-night thunderstorm which woke us up at 4AM. I grabbed my recording setup and stuck the mic out the window on a pole (which reminds me I need to start using a wood pole instead of metal during thunderstorms :-). This is the complete recording. I like the very low rumbles at the beginning. I did not normalize it this time, so you will notice that it clips a bit at 1:29 during the "MassiveBlast". I measured the time from the lightning strike (at 1:26) to the thunder, which is 2.8 seconds. This works out to 2.8/5 = 0.56 miles (0.9 km) away.
