I was at the computer when I heard a large rumble. I thought it was one of the farmers going down the road with a string of empty gravity wagons. I went out the front door and looked up and down the road. Nothing in site. Then I heard it again. It was thunder, not the load crack just a very loud rumble. Came in and thought I had better bring some more wood in for the stove. When I went to the back door, all 3 cats couldn't wait to come in. Sounded real nasty, but we only got 10 mins. of rain, hail and winds. Thought it would be much worst.
