So, what's the difference between a monsoon and a really big thunderstorm? Either way, I'd love it, but I am wondering if there is a distinction.

I used to wonder the same thing. The Monsoon is a seasonal shift in prevailing winds that brings moisture into areas that have been hot and dry. Technically, it is the precondition for the thunderstorms we get from July until September. But people often make the metonymic slip from describing the weather season to labeling individual storms "monsoons." It's more fun that way.
