I heard a thunder. / I heard the thuder.
Is there any difference in the use of articles in the following context:
We were going back home after a day's walking tour to the forest. The sky was getting darker. A strong wind began to blow and we heard a / the thunder.
I know that "thunder" is uncountable and it's better to use "a clap of thunder" or a "roll of thunder", but still, can one just use "thunder" alone and sound natural?

If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)
