American Experience - PBS Series

I am somewhat of a history buff, for no other reason asides the fact that I am somewhat of a history buff. Which is probably why I enjoy the PBS series American Experience. They are like mini history lessons all in 50 minutes. Just finished watching one about the Dust Bowl, very informative.

And as Forrest Gump would say "And that's all I have to say about that"

Which reminds me, have I ever blogged how I was almost an extra in the movie Forrest Gump and how Chris and I will never watch it together as I can point out so many people that I knew and the roles they played as extras in the film?

Guess now that I have mentioned it I will have to blog about it soon!

The Storm in the Cloud

"Wake up and come see this" Chris says at 5:45 in the morning. Grumble, grumble I go out to the patio to see this lone fluffy cumulus cloud hanging over the ocean. "Watch" is all Chris says.
Within a few moments there was a lightning bolt that shot from the top of the cloud to the bottom on the cloud, it lit it up very bright. This continued on an on, all the while lightning bolts staying within the cloud but never reaching beyond.

I realized this would make a cool video so I ran to get my digital camera, by then the lightning was slowing down just a bit and I had to wait for a train to pass, otherwise the first few seconds of the film would have been rather annoying.

The monsoon season has started and the rain has become more frequent. Today there was a pretty good thunder boomer while I was at work.
