Northern Lights

The big one got away! The northern lights were Amazing the night before last, there were 4 bands like this, but very well defined, they went right across the sky the into a spiral in the north. By the time I got my camera and changed lenses theis is all that was left. They were very bitght, even against the street lights.
I'll keep my eyes open for more, and have my camera ready. Posted by Picasa

Lewis' Bed

Well after almost a year I have completed Lewis' loft bed. The design was modified from one I sae in a magazine. I made it mostly of economy grade 2x4 lumber which I planed down to about 1 1/2 x 3. It is all held together by lagg bolts. All I need to do now is figure out how to build a ladder. Posted by Picasa

Capreol Lake

Well I am back from Sudbury now, I don't have many pix to show for it. Here is one, a view from on top of one of the small hills in the area where we were working. The yellow cylinder is the surface coil, it is basically an antenna for out Pulse EM system.
As you can see there are no large trees in this area, that is because over the last 100 years they were all poisoned by SO2 comming from the smelting opperations. In the 70s the built a massive smoke stack to make the SO2 someone elses problem. Vegetation has returned, but it is a slow process because the soils are thin and contaminated. Posted by Picasa
