The thunder was deafening

The flash of lightning and clap of thunder were almost simultaneous

The storm passed almost overhead. How do I know? Well, if you count the seconds (One-Mississippi, Two-Mississippi, Three-Mississippi, etc.) between the flash and the bang in a lightning storm then for every 5 seconds (5 Mississippis) the storm is 1 mile (~1.5 km) away. In this storm, I got to flash “1 missis” bang. It was close.
