[RFI] Anyone ID the cause of this rain-initiated RFI?

Could be a lot of things.  Few years ago I had a bent squirrel guard on a
transformer that acted up every time it rained.  Sounded like a Jacob's
Ladder.  New squirrel guard fixed it.  

Good luck tracking it down!

It's been generally RFI-quiet here ...

Just got 0.16" of sudden downpour a little earlier and came inside.

Turned on the rig and from 550kHz - 14+mHz I heard this in AM mode:


I did not hear it on 17m or higher on my IC-7200 using the ZeroFive 43'

Anyone recognize the sound's likely source, please?

Thanks - David KD4E
