Have you ever been woken up by loud thunder?

I mean here in FL it isn't uncommon, but I usually can sleep through a storm. Today I was woken up by thunder twice. Some cells moved through Florida (oddly enough east to west, not the usual west to east) and it was interesting. I usually would watch the storm but I wanted to sleep. Lightning is fascinating.

There have been a few times where it's so loud it rattles the house

@SW-User Once I think lightning actually struck the house that's how loud it was. Speaking from experience and hundreds of close strikes I've never heard thunder that loud

@TetrisGuy they conspire to melt us, humidity and heat. but at least it's a beautiful day.

@pentacorn Yeah I love the stormy weather as long as there is plenty of thunder and lightning

I rarely sleep through a storm. Likely as not, there's a tremendous flash that goes past my west-facing bedroom window, followed by a tremendous growl of thunder. Sometimes, it's so deep the ground shakes.

Yeah, a couple of times. Once it wasn't a boom of thunder, it was more like a zzzzap, the lighting struck that close.

Yeah I hate when it rains super bad and then there is a loud BOOM!
