A rumble of lightning

This one was heard on the local weather on Baltimore’s WMAR Channel 2 (June 14, 2022, 7:57 AM to be exact). The newscaster mixed “a rumble of thunder” and “a crack of lightning”. Crack is the sound of lightning as it tears through the air and is close, while thunder is a rumbling sound heard farther from the lightning source. Or so I am told. Anyway, a big thanks to Fred Martin for hearing this one and sending it in!
