I was on a farm in VA on the 4th July 2012 & at ~ 9pm I stepped outside to watch various firework shows. I could see several different areas at the
same time, Middleburg, Upperville, Winchester South, Berryville, Winchester N, & also a few private shows. A storm was coming, the wind had begun to
pick up & it felt good because it had been so hot the past several days. Then after about 10 to 15 min of walking to either side of the house watching
the fireworks, clouds had began to form pretty heavily coming from different directions the N, E, S, SW. I felt like I was on a movie set. The
lightening was coming in what appeared to be a perfect 360 degree circle all around extending outward with the clouds being a little darker than the
inner perimeter... some were strikes & others were strange flashes so bright it was like day light....both taking turns ALL the way around in a
perfect circle. I have experienced many storms in different locations around the country including extremely bad ones & a Tornado, but none of them
exhibited the behavior of this storm. Even heat lightening did not look like the flashes I saw as they were taking up the whole area & much
brighter...the strikes were moving around the perimeter of the circle & alternating w/ the flashes.
I have never heard nor felt Thunder like I experience that night.It was a very long long drawn out rumble, very low in pitch & continued on & on & you
could feel it. The best way I can describe it is it literally sounded & felt like it was coming up from the Bowels of Hell. One Thunder Rumble, as it
was not a roll, would last ~a minute plus & once that one ended the next one would start within 30 sec to a minute. This whole scenario lasted at
1 1/2 hrs & I was out in it because it never rained. I really wanted to post something that night but didn't have time & I'm glad to see people are
posting in regards to the strange weather. Storms use to come & go but this was so incredible to see, like a movie set. Wish I had a camera as cell
phone doesn't do well at night...It reminded me of a movie & cannot remember the name, the main character was the devil, had Gary Sinese & Corin
Nemic....I think everyone was heading west to Vegas to meet the devil (no one knew he was the devil) & it was a 3 night series. The reason I
associated the movie was due to "the Bowels of Hell" thunder here because it seemed to be thunder & lightening alot through out the movie. Ey that was
so bloody long ago... since that storm I have heard that same kind of thunder on 2 other occasions. We had a storm today & everything, thunder &
lightening were normal like they use to be in the past. Since the 4th July 2012 I try to monitor the details of local storms if possible.
Sorry I did not think of using my phone to record the audio.
