The first real thunderstorm of the year rolled through so I took some video and captured some nice lightning bolts and edited together this montage.

There are 18 different lightning clips. For some of the more impressive displays, I immediately followed it with a replay at one quarter the speed (and the word “Replay” appears when it’s a replay because otherwise it’s difficult to notice when the change takes place). At the end, I slowed down my favorites to one tenth. For the sound, I put together three of the best thunder booms and rumbles. (Obviously the sound doesn’t match the video.)

One Channel, Two Wildly Different Snow Forecasts

If you were watching WCBS-TV/Channel 2 in New York within about a 20-minute period tonight, you were treated to two very different forecasts for the snow storm expected to hit the area Friday.

Lonnie Quinn’s forecast on CBS 2 News at 6:00:


David Bernard’s forecast on the CBS Evening News at 6:30:


Depending on which forecast the south shore of Long Island listens to, they’ll either get four to eight inches of snow or one to two feet.

Same channel.

UPDATE:  CNN’s Chad Myers pointed out that the computer models are very different. If you look at these forecasts, New York City will get either 5.7 inches or 23.3 inches of snow.

The decimal point conveys precision!
