What happens above the clouds

If you ever don’t read the Cloud Appreciation Society newsletter when I repost them, this is the one to read. There is an amazing 10 minute video about what happens high in the atmosphere above electrical storms. It will definitely make me take a longer look at distant storms.

I thought I liked this one that I put together yesterday.  But I wasn’t sure.  So I slept on it. (Well, not literally, that would’ve been really messy.)

That’s the up side of working in oil.  It’s not too late to change your mind the next morning.

Several people have wanted to see this upside down.  It’s not the first time I’ve hung something upside down (The Road to Selfoss looked great upside down when I accidentally wired it the wrong way and hung it up before I realized.)  So – here it is without the surrounding ‘wall diaper’ – upside down.  Nah, it doesn’t work for me.
