Hi Moe,

I grew up watching the transmitter towers and the absolutely mind numbing
experience of the largest thunderstorms on earth rolling accross the plains
of Texas and Oklahoma, commonly called tornado alley.

As to your assertion that the lightning can strike many miles away, I am in
agreement. I have seen where lightning has struck an area with no
immediately visible clouds in sight. Scientists at the National Weather
Service in Norman Oklahoma (perfect location for this service) have measure=
lightning striking up to six miles away from the source.

Here is a nice rolling t-storm I recorded a few years ago in Oklahoma right
outside my house, courtesy of Yannick Dauby's website Kalerne. Recorded
using Sonic Studio's quasi-binaural medium sensitivity mics and an MT20
Sharp minidisc.
