    Neato lightning strike

    Once-in-a-lifetime picture of lightning striking San Francisco's Bay Bridge | Mail Online

    For a second I was about to wail "photoshopppp'd!", but the given circumstances leave me convinced: Overlooking apartment and 20 sec exposure time ftw.

    Oh trust me, it wasn't 'shopped. I had to drive through that storm last night, it was a hairy mutha.

    Got several enormous lightning flashes and thunder booms directly overhead while driving down Peninsula 101 from South SF to Mountain View. Was raining not only cats n' dogs, but farm animals as well.

    Even the normally psycho-fast Bay Area drivers were all going 45, scared out of their wits.

    Gee, I don't know. Maybe it has to do with bridges being tall metal objects standing in/over water? Just a hunch...

    Amazing picture.
    Gives me flashbacks of the lightning that chased us off a plateau when I was hiking at Philmont Scout Ranch.
