Here just outside downtown Kitchener we heard the loudest clap of thunder from positive lightning. Radar showed the nearest storm was about 40km away. That's one huge lightning bolt!

Just got home from work...looks like a busy night on radar.
Its been drizzle/light rain here so far. I like what I'm seeing in the states, so this could be interesting the next few days.
I need to hear thunder, as I mentioned in another post...lol
