Free Electricity



I shot this just NW of Amarillo this evening on Loop 335 , just north of I-40. Xcel energy was saying today because of an equipment failure they may have to initiate rolling blackouts across the city. Why can't they just capture some lightning?

I did.

P.S. Thanks Dale for toting me out there with ya tonight!

Glad to have ya. Glad we came away with a few shots anyhow. Wish it could have been more active. Oh, well. Beggars can't be choosy, huh?

Dale, thanks again for choosing to take me along. It might have not been the best storm, but if you capture at least one bolt, i consider it a success.

I'll admit we're a bunch of energy hogs,
It's true we could always use more,
But capturing lightning for power lines?
Careful what you wish for!
