Super gusty all day today. Too difficult to work outside so took a couple of drives to kill some time. According to my instruments: average wind speed today from 9 AM to 7PM was 16.7 mph, and the max recorded gust was 39.3 mph. My turbines screamed all day - batteries are charged full and the diversion load heated 8 gallons of water. The wind finally died down at 5:30PM. Nice calm evening.
Since I was thwarted in my desire to work outside, I decided today would be a good day to do a test ( for Chris Callis ) of the time lapse feature of my digital camera. I shot this piece from 5:04PM to 6:45PM - uploaded to YouTube tonight. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mz68hPZvMIU This test was shot with exposure locked on. Video was shot at 1 frame every 2 seconds. I shot this from just inside my front door looking north. Way too windy to set the camera up outside. Next test to be done with the exposure not locked.
