May 10 “Zot”

Dogs hate thunderstorms:

Big noisy lights in the sky,

Ozone danger smell.

From Wikipedia:

In the atmospheric electrical discharge, a leader of a bolt of lightning can travel at speeds of 60,000 m/s (220,000 km/h), and can reach temperatures approaching 30,000 °C (54,000 °F), hot enough to fuse silica sand into glass

The average peak power output of a single lightning stroke is about a terawatt (1012 W) and the stroke lasts for around 30 microseconds.

Lightning rapidly heats the air in its immediate vicinity to around 20,000 °C (36,000 °F) – about three times the temperature of the surface of the Sun. This compresses the surrounding clear air and creates a supersonic shock wave which decays to an acoustic wave that is heard as thunder.
