A hair-raising experience

One of the occupational hazards of doing field work during monsoon season is the the afternoon thunder showers. A couple of days ago, Lisa, myself, and two BLM interns were working at the Big Daddy site, when we noticed my hair was standing in end. The air was charged with static from all the storm clouds overhead.
We decided to high-tail it down the mountainside for a few minutes, until the threat of lightning had passed. A very exiting afternoon!
