 :-| Working outdoors all day today has me drained!  I hope to be able to stay up to watch both shows.

Thanks for the heads-up!  ;)

After watching the show on lightning, I have the sudden urge to purchase a super-slow-motion video camera. #-o Some AMAZING video!

  Both of those programs were excellent!!  Incredible video in both.  I agree that the lightning videos were beautiful.  Might have to get the DVD's if available.  Both get A++ :!:    =D>

That was 'enlightning'.  Except for segment Catatumbo. The scientist thinks there's a corellation b/w the increase there and global warming.  Oh here we go. Not 1 min later they say because it's so spectacular, the location has been used as a lighthouse for centuries.

I actually chuckled out loud when he said that :lol:. I missed a majority of the show on tornado's, but recorded it for later.

Has anyone seen the other episodes?  The one about flooding was very interesting.
