Lightning Show Last Night!!

Thanks to Bill Riordan for sending these cool lightning pics! These were taken in Hartford last night from the Park Place Towers! GORGEOUS! But the storms were LOUD for people who were trying to sleep.
The rapid expansion of heated air causes thunder. Since light travels faster than sound, the thunder is heard after the lightning. If you see lightning and hear thunder at the same time, that lightning is in your neighborhood.
