Skycrane803 viewsThe Sikorsky "Skycrane" was originally designed for the military. It has interchangeable pods for a variety of uses. We were particularly interested in the water tank pod today. It can hold 2,650 Gallons of water and you see it here, dumping all 2,650 Gallons on the fire as it moves up Sunset Ridge.

Other than re-sizing this photo, no color or contrast correction was done. This is the view of the Sun looking through the smoke from the Burbank Fire.

Wind Over My Station1158 viewsTaken 1/23/06
Strong winds buffeted Southern California last night and this morning causing wide spread damage. Fallen trees, downed power lines, etc. Sustained winds at my station were 30 mph with gusts as high as 42 mph. Combined with extremely low humidity, these conditions have prompted a Red Flag Fire Alert. Here, the wind is bending over the tree in my front yard with my Weather Station s Anemometer and Rain Bucket in the foreground.

Double Rainbow 9/4/20112148 viewsA high pressure system over the four corners area combined with a low pressure system off the southern california coast steered subtropical moisture into Southern California this evening. This provided Altadena residents with rare summer showers and a thunderstorm this evening.

This double Rainbow was seen at Sunset.
