Mysterious Audio Follows Lightning Strike: I’m usually content to post links to stories I find interesting, with a smattering of personal comments here and there, but I think something interesting happened to me in my home overnight — a stormy Friday The 13th night — that I should share here.

Lightning during Friday The 13th storm in north Fort Worth, Texas, taken May 13, 2005A line of strong, but not severe, thunderstorms was moving into the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex between midnight and 1 a.m. Saturday. My wife was asleep (or trying to sleep at this point since the thunder was rattling all of our windows). I was downstairs and had our TV tuned to a radar image from a local station. I had turned off the TV sound by turning off my receiver, so that the only electronics on in the house at that time were the TV, Dish Network receiver and upstairs computer, with its speakers turned off.

Moments later, there was a bright flash and simultaneous crackling sound that seemed almost deafening. A lightning bolt must have struck within feet of my home. Immediately after the strike, I heard what I can only describe as sound from a loud AM or shortwave radio tuned to a man broadcasting something. I’m not sure exactly what was said, as I wasn’t expecting it, and the transmission only lasted for about 5 seconds. The sound may have emanated from the speakers on top of the armoire, despite the receiver being turned off.

Lightning during Friday The 13th storm in north Fort Worth, Texas, taken May 13, 2005My frightened dog, Jake, ran downstairs to me and I went upstairs to my now-awake wife and asked her if she had heard anything besides that incredibly loud crackling sound, since I thought one of the clock radios upstairs might have gone off. She said she heard the crackling sound but no voice.

Anyway, I started looking into whether others have reported hearing radio waves at the moment of an extremely close lightning strike, and haven’t had much luck. This article states:

A lightning strike can propagate noise on many frequencies, however, most of the effective radiated energy is concentrated in the very low frequency range.

But could it work the other way, and audio from a radio transmission be carried though a lightning strike?

Has anyone else experienced or read of something similar happening?

If not, maybe my house is haunted, or I need medication…

NWS Bill Controversy, Part ???: From this Daytona Beach News article by Mark Lane:

“The weather service’s site received 9 billion hits last year. A government Web site record.

Wow. A government agency performing a useful service valued by a huge number of people. And giving the folks easy access to data that was collected using their own tax dollars.

Obviously, this sort of mischief needs to be shut down and right away.

Obviously, that is, if you’re a very, very, very, very conservative senator who happens to represent the state that is headquarters to AccuWeather.”

Ed Oswald of WeatherBlog canceled his subscription to AccuWeather over this. I don’t have subscriptions for any of the weather providers. I’m cheap :^)

Traffic On The 8s: The Weather Channel will add local traffic content to its “Local on the 8s” in five major markets May 3. (Subscription required to read article)
