...and they waited...and they waited. Until, one December evening, the "green flash" occurred. About an hour before this picture it looked like conditions would be ideal for the flash. In anticipation my dad 2b put two drops of the magic concoction into the dread pirate cat's dinner. The picture above was taken about an hour later - click on picture to enlarge and see the beginnings of the green flash of the sun. The picture was taken moments before the actual flash.

Now back to the blog...please note that if my mom stayed around to take the next shot my parents would not have had time to escape the dread pirate cat. In fact, right after this picture was taken my parents took advantage of the pirate cat's drunken stupor and ran away into the night...and into their freedom.
