SkyWatch Friday on Thursday, how can that be? Last week I made my first post on SkyWatch Friday and at that time I let my regular viewers know what it was all about. But I bet you didn't expect it on a Thursday this week did you, neither did I . After speaking with a friend at work that has participated in SkyWatch for a few weeks now I learned that this was not started in the USA and that it actually begins on Thursday for us. That being said I declare it Skywatch Friday on Thursday in Pennsylvania.
I guess I forgot about the photograph. This was taken July 31, 2006 in downtown Shippensburg. For the second time in 18 years a multiple alarm fire struck this building in the first block of East King Street. In the photograph Trucks 53 and 1 operate elevated master streams into the fire from their Emergency-One tower ladders. I don't know why but the photograph looked much better in print, when I uploaded it the colors in the sky seemed to wash out, the sky has more red in the printed photo.
