What an awesome catch! 


C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft

Lightning was hitting all over the place every few seconds......I did cheat though and must confess....I filmed about 30 seconds on my phone and then screenshot the bolt from the video.....got about 4 good shots...worked well though. Sometimes when I'm board I watch tornados on YouTube...I think those things are completely terrifying. We get cyclone warnings every year but when one hits it is just a huge storm that is all around....a Tornado for me is so scary because you can see it.

Rain rain and rain here Ron. So glad I now have a gas forge as the fires used to run cold this time of year unless I stocked up during the dry. It is a funny place here..fires rip through in the dry ( I just walk out back with big bags and collect coal ) and rain in the wet.
