Oooh, the "cold" front came through and we're looking at near record overnight lows for the next few nights. Only around 20C. This really could be a time to turn off the AC and open the windows.

As a matter of fact, yes! I went for a walk in the middle of it, and got thoroughly soaked. One of the lightning strikes sounded like it was less than 100 m away.

DO you have lightning strikes precategorized based on distance?

"Precategorized", no. But doesn't everyone know (from an early age) that you can estimate the distance based on the amount of time elapsed between the flash and the boom?

no, about 1 mile for every 5 seconds.

this one sounded like less than 1/3 of a second.

1 second is longer than most people think. I can understand perceiving halves or thirds of seconds, especially if you often estimate time.

Same as measurements - in a publishing context, pouring and creating pages for newsprint, I often needed to eyeball very small measurements. A point , for example, is 1/72nd of an inch. With experience I could easily see points, half points, etc.

The part of the story I forgot to say:

I stupidly imagined that I could do this complete walk before the storm arrived. It was very warm, and I was dressed accordingly.

I was maybe 30 or 40 m away from my house when I heard someone running behind me. I thought: Cool, one of my kids is going to join me for this walk.

It was TG. Instead of joining me for the walk, she grabbed me by the arm, pulled me all the way back to the house, and said: "Dad, do you hear that thunder? You need your rain-jacket."

So I grabbed my rain-jacket and started over again.

And she was right.

So it wasn't really accurate when I said I got "thoroughly soaked". Only the parts of me not covered by the jacket were soaked.

NOMB, but you might want to consider putting this 'TG' on staff.
