Speed of Sound

Just experiencing an interesting demo of the speed of sound in air and through the ground - they're pile-driving supports for the new Crossrail power line support gantries this afternoon, about sixty or seventy yards from my house, I'm hearing the sound first followed by some vibration through the ground and my house a fraction of a second later.
