After recording http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=25022 I moved down to the porch. The rain was coming down harder and harder, drowning out the sound of the thunder since it was hitting the roof a few inches below the camera. Also the camera was getting wet :-) So I moved down to the porch and recorded this. In this segment the rain becomes a torrent, then tapers off, intermixed with a number of close lightning strikes. To one side you can hear water dropping from a gutter to the ground where it has formed a large pool (I have the downspout removed at the moment). A final thunderstrike closes the clip.

    Please see this thread for info on the ogg format: http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1190
    The WAV of this is something like 60MB which is too big for most people. Personally I like the sound of ogg better than mp3, but ogg is not as well known. I put this one up in ogg format (vs. mp3) to get a sense for how popular the format is. If you want it in mp3 you can use audacity or some other audio editor to convert it.
