June thunderstorm

Late in the day, I looked up to see dark clouds on the eastern horizon:

Not too long after, a very loud clap of thunder rolled across the sky.  The thunder lasted for about 25-30 minutes, so I recorded a few examples.  The recordings are best heard with headphones, if you have them.  Otherwise, you might need to turn up the volume of your speakers.  [If you can't see the audio files below, click on the title of the post above to go to the website.]

It started to rain...and then the storm decided to add some pea-sized hail:

The thunderstorm moved off to the south, and the sky started to clear, but this wonderful storm ended with a grand finale:

Photos and recordings are from Cotati on 11 June 2017.
