Weather - Dr. George

It was a dark and stormy night....

I shot about 1000 photos last night.  I'm highly impressed with the battery life of this camera.

Only a dozen or so of the shots came out decently.  I had put the camera into continuous drive mode and just started shooting hundreds of shots at a time, hoping to catch a bolt of lightning.

We got about 2-3/4 inches (7 cm) of rain last night, and the thunder and lightning lasted from before midnight until at least 7 or 8 in the morning.

This picture was taken at about 1 am!


We were under a Tornado Watch earlier today, but it just expired a couple minutes ago without much fanfare.  There are a bunch of Tornado Warnings to the south around the Nebraska/Kansas/Missouri/Iowa borders.

Just some pics

Sea of Corn

Some kind of white flowers along the side of the road


One Lane Bridge

Super macro photograph of a check.  The "Authorized Signature" is microprint that makes up the signature line.  Under the naked eye, it appears to be a solid line.
