That's an intense video. It really illustrates how dynamic the weather conditions are on the mountain.

Wow that was fantastic Steve. I loved when the clouds cleared a little and poof magicaly, dry mountains were snow capped. Awesome.

As an amateur meteorologist, what amazed me (besides the obvious awesome video itself) was, in part of the video, seeing two levels of clouds, each at their own altitude going in totally different directions!

That video is definitely a keeper!

Steve, you've outdone yourself! That was incredible. I'd like to see more of those over the next few months.

> Steve, you've outdone yourself!

No, it wasn't much on my part. I am just making use of the technology available. Thank Mike at SebecTec LLC for building the video capabilities into the web cam software. All I did was upload the video to YouTube and set up a link.

I'll be watching for more spectacular stormy weather, and try to save those videos. In the future, I hope to set up the system to upload the current day's video automatically at the end of each day.

In the video above, I like watching the clouds' "boiling" action. Fun to watch, no?

Edit: I have added this morning's view above.
