If I could go back in time, I would go back and start the greatest YouTube channel there's ever been.

I've been there. :)

I think the boats help give a sense of scale:

I saw two pieces fall, but didn't get to film one because people were blocking the path to take group pictures five paces from the viewing platform.

I know that looks tiny, but it also looks like it's falling in slow-motion, because 9.8 m/s2 isn't much compared to the size of that slab of ice.

You can see the ring of debris from the splash of the larger fall I'd just missed.

I thought the change in loading on the ice left behind and the waves generated by that fall might destabilise the ice around that spot, causing more falls.

I started filming. I waited and watched.

That was the only one.

I *could* edit the file down to just those 20 seconds or so ... but I'd be saving it in .avi format and the file would be *bigger* and take longer to upload, so I just uploaded the .mov and put those notes on it.

Indoors or Outdoors?
It seems like an adventure to bathe in cold water Outside.
It seems...well...a little strange to do it inside. (sorry)

I am near enough to the Ocean, I am spared most of the extremes.
Inland, the people here are facing some scary stuff.

Fires raging through neighborhoods, smoke hanging heavy in the air, triple digit temperatures.
That can't happen in England. Right?

Civil life is old there.
Every square inch is manicured and under the control of man.

Right?
Even the Black Forest is not wild.
