Which Comes First?

We had a thunderstorm the other night. They usually come during this time of the year and would last perhaps until July.

The next morning, I overheard some neighbors discussing something about the thunder and lightning. One person said there were times that the thunder came first before the lightning… my left eye-brow rose. Then I heard another voice said something that when that happens the tide will rise! Now my eye-brows met at the center of my forehead!

To think I knew the second voice came from someone who finished college! But I think they believed more on superstitions than science.I knew since my childhood days that thunder is the sound created when the lightning strikes. Oh my! Pardon their ignorance…
