Monday's Video

We did get some "action" yesterday, but it wasn't the kind of action I ever want to see!
The really great thing was that within the hour, there were 2 helicopters dropping water, 3 small planes, and 2 other planes dropping retardant. There might be orange animals running around up there today, but at least they're alive, and the fire is out.
So on to what I really wanted to share with you today....

Everything in this video was filmed from our back deck last year as the monsoons worked their way in and out of our days.

Sit back, turn up the music, and enjoy!

Hubby spent many days letting the camera run while the clouds built, and grew, and then fell in on themselves. Of course, this is sped up to be able to watch them grow, but you can watch them do that with the naked eye as well. This is our kind of fun!

I'm so proud of him. So beautiful.

O U S T A N D I N G !
Bravo...this was awesome! The lightening is really amazing and how the strikes are timed to the cybals...Is this his work? It certainly is professional.

Thanks for the adrenaline rush this morning.

Sciencegirl-thank you!

Dan-Thanks! This is his work, and from our own backyard. We make commercials, audio & video, so he has the equipment to do it.
He was a man possessed, and it shows!

That was truly amazing video! Very impressive. Love the photos too. Glad to hear the fire didn't get out of hand.
