The Sound of Thunder

Saturday evening, there was a thunderstorm here in Minneapolis. This was the first thunderstorm that I have ever experienced outside of Pennsylvania and New York.

It sounded really, really different here. In New York and Pennsylvania, the thunder rolls in a sort of Poisson-sounding curve... it gets louder and louder and then trails off with more distant rumbles along the way. In Minneapolis, it gets louder for a little bit and then levels off. Then, it gets about twice as loud and goes on and on and on and on at an even volume after that.

I wonder what other ways it sounds in other places.
