October sunrise on a very windy day

It's mid October and we just hit a high of 97 yesterday. All night long we've had strong winds and they're projected to continue throughout the day.  Here is a time lapse video of the "sunrise" you don't really see the sun, but it is interesting how the color of the clouds change as the sun rises in the sky.

Sunrise in August

This turned out fairly well, for some reason recording stopped automatically which was a little disappointing, also I caught a few smudges on the window.

Playing around with time lapse photography

The past few days I've been playing around with time lapse photography using my old phone. I tried out a few different apps and when I found one I liked I upgraded to the pro version. Now that I had a few videos I needed a way to share them and YouTube seemed like the obvious choice. Setting up a channel was easily done, and below are some links to my first few videos. I enjoy the feeling of just how big the sky looks when it's in motion like this.  I'm still trying to find a good balance between frame rate and how often pictures are taken.

Zombie Escape Room

The zombie with Erin and I
For my birthday Erin got tickets for a zombie escape room in the cities. It was a blast, but not at all what we were expecting.  The room was smaller then what we thought it would be, and within 20 minutes the zombie could reach anywhere in the room.  The group had to keep moving around a central desk in order to keep safe.  Early on I found a battery and absentmindedly put it in my pocket. Until I realized I had it the groups progress was blocked.  We made it out with seconds to spare.

Pinewood Derby

Rick suggested that we take part in a local pinewood derby.  It's been a while since I've built one of these, but it turned out pretty well.  We didn't place, but we both won most of our races.  The winners were recycling their childrens boyscout cars.
