11 July – Fledge Watch


It was a pretty morning, but an exciting one! At about 0830, a micro burst came through and awakened the fire department. The foot hills got hit, as witnessed here. Awesome photo, but dangerous image. You can make out a plume of smoke. The red-orange sky is the sun being filtered through smoke from the Mountain Home area, 45 minutes east of Boise. The falcons, seemed to be aware of the situation – rain, thunder, lightning, winds – so they were “sitting tight”. Here are some photos. Enjoy!
