Refill That Tank

Today I worked a smidge on a Minute Movie from the other day… I managed to catch a lightning strike out towards the badlands on film… and oddly enough, the guys spotted a fire out that way this afternoon.  I’m sure it’s not the same one, but I thought it would be a good tie-in.

You know, plot development, foreshadowing… STORYTELLING.

The guys have been out fighting the fire… a couple hundred acres to the southwest of us… and Tess and I and Jaxon have preoccupied ourselves waiting…

Look who had spaghetti for supper!

But Tess headed home, and I began to watch.  Lightning storms are *fascinating*… barring the fire potential and, well, death potential…

Time to break out the camera.

Lots of cloud glow… ok, a tiny little strike…

But nothing, NOTHING, like this.  In desperation, I ran for another camera…

Neh.

I pretty much FAILED  at this gorgeous storm…

But I did catch my sons… volunteer firefighters… refilling the tank on the fire truck with quite the light show behind them…
