Aborted a plan to head to Odessa tomorrow in light of the rain forecast for the next couple of days. Decided on the move this morning when the weather report changed from 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms to 50% chance of scattered thunderstorms. I would hate to miss a good rain event. Gotta grab it if and when it falls.
Got my new jumbo fresnel today via FedEx and gave it a quick tryout. The focus point is about 2000 degrees and it started melting sand almost immediately. I'm thinking TFL solar sandglass castings of some sort might be for sale soon. Check out all the videos from Greenpowerscience at http://www.youtube.com/user/GREENPOWERSCIENCE?blend=1&ob=5
