Response to 6 Lightning Injuries in Colorado Last Week

 

I can't confirm if this is true but it is interesting. This was posted in the lightning discussion in rec.backcountry:

If the clouds look at all like cauliflower, flip on your am radio...at the closest clear channel to am540, you hear the interference caused by lightning out to around 100 miles...at am1760 you will hear only those strokes close enough that if it were night you would be able to see most of them...(your mileage may vary dependant on
radio, antenna type, and experience listening to static)
