How fast does sound travel? Dallas Cowboys Texas Stadium demolition

Description

I live about 9 miles away from the Texas stadium location and was wondering if I would be able to hear the sound of the explosions during its demolition. I recorded the TV live with my camcorder as I stood outside my front door listening for the sound, if any to reach me. They did and took about 35 seconds to travel the distance. Which works out correctly when you calculate the speed of sound and the temperature outside was about 50 degrees almost the perfect temperature for the experiment.
