Nice trip report, shhsgirl. While I haven't had any lightning experiences I would call harrowing, I can imagine the heightened senses. I've definitely seen my share of intense, out-of-the-blue hailstorms and have been among the "counting seconds between flash and boom" crowd.

As for the reliability of eyewitness testimony, I totally concur, especially when the question concerns distance from A to B. :-D
“Though sluggards deem it but a foolish chase,
And marvel men should quit their easy chair,
The toilsome way, and long, long leagues to trace,
Oh! there is sweetness in the mountain air,
And life that bloated Ease can never hope to share.”
