For those of you who have never lived in New England, this is what a New England thunderstorm can be like.  This doesn’t give you the full impact of the rain or the thunder (though you can hear both), but it does give you an idea of what the lightning is like.  I count 33 lightning blasts in 123 seconds, so one a little less than every four seconds.  And I don’t think at any point do more than 6 or 7 seconds go by without one.
