1. I would attempt to explain it, but as you asked and you are an NPC

A racist NPC at that, it would do me no good to explain how they both happen at the same time.

12. Yes, once in the northern Ohio in the snow belt between Cleveland and Erie Pa. ...

I also once saw ball lighting in the same area when I was probably around six or seven.

My dad and I were outside in a light rain when we noticed this ball of lightning moving across our back yard. It disappeared when it encountered a water faucet sticking up out of the ground.

My dad simply said, “Now that is something you don’t see everyday.”

5. Lightning first, thunder from the lightning second

Not an expert.

6. How old are you?

It takes lightning to produce the (sound) thunder. Thunder would not exist without lightning. My neighbors kid knew that and he is only 5 years old.
