We’ve had a couple of dustings of snow, maybe an inch on the ground, but this was the first significant snow of the season. This video is a couple of days old, and most of the snow is gone already. At least here around the house. It’s unseasonably warm now and we’ve had some sprinkles of rain. I’m afraid it hasn’t helped our snow pack much. The melting snow is going right down the river.
If there is one thing I’ve learned about high definition video it’s that the files that are produced are huge! To large to upload a clip of any great length to a hosting site; at least not at my connection speed. For instance, this video is just over 5 minutes long, and at high definition the file is over 600 mbs. I have DSL, but not the high speed version. Upload time would have been over 2 hours! I had to keep playing with it, reducing the resolution little by little, until I came up with a file of a manageable size. The original is fantastic here on my monitor, but unfortunately you can’t see what I see.
