I've purchased commercially produced nature recordings of thunderstorms ... and thought I could do a better job, I believe I have done that.  There is no music, just a really nice thunderstorm.

I'd made recordings of thunderstorms over a period of three decades.  And, although some of those were pretty impressive, I've never really been satisfied with the results until technology caught up to allow what I'm offering to you here.  The problem with analog tape is the lower dynamic range, i.e. with the recording level set to capture the thunderclaps without distortion, the quieter portions between thunder tend to be buried in tape hiss.  The audio CD recorder provides the signal to noise ratio essential for this type of recording.  If you have a high end stereo, you won't be disappointed either ... although your neighbors might be.  Here is a recording you can use to show off your system! 
You might enjoy pushing the limits of your audio system for a wall jarring 'in your face' experience. There is a lot of detail in this 73 minute recording. The thunder ranges from distant low rumbles to the sharp explosive crack of a near strike!  Listen to a brief sample in mp3 format here.

Many possible uses:  Low volume for a relaxing ambient or noise masking playback ... many people love to 'sleep in' when the sky is rumbling, so it might even work for you as a sleep aid.  But, another recording available on this site, Mellow Thunderstorm, might be more appropriate as a sleep aid.
