Fog Bank, August 5, 2013
Hello fellow weather geeks, this is Dave Phillips. Follow me on Twitter, @skydaver. Tell your friends to follow me, too.
First pick is a bunch of different lightning photos, Capital Weather Gang, Reed Timmer, and the Great Falls and Albequerque offices of the NWS
Capital Weather Gang retweeted a great lightning photo from Kerri Patton@Kerri_lane 11:47 AM

A composite photo of lightning strikes, from the Great Falls Montana NWS office
Another lightning photo, this one posted on the NWS Albuquerque
Josh Alecci (@aleccijosh) tweeted a link from Reed Timmer of a lightning strike video in very close proximity to the camera
My second pick comes from Anthony Sagliani, a thunderstorm picture from Denver Digital Photography on Facebook. Anthony wrote "Real, or manipulated?"
That sets up my third pick, an article from the Capital Weather Gang about false weather photos in social media
Fourth, From the Earth Observatory twitter account, @NASA_EO, a picture from the Terra/MODIS satellite of a dust storm off Africa
I'll close with WeatherBug, and a short essay on Hawaii's relative lack of hurricanes
I guess when they wrote that, they didn't know that TS Flossie hit North Carolina last month, crossed all the way over the continent, managed to stay together over the Rockies, and back into the Pacific, where it was headed towards Hawaii.
Thanks for listening
