Good reminder. Actually, by the time you hear thunder, you have been within the reach of lightning for some time. Lightning can strike at a distance of over 20 miles which means it can strike from a location over the horizon for most folks on the ground. Thunder, however, usually can't be heard for more than 12 miles at most.

See for some good insight.
