Forgive this ignorant, short time reader of Warning Signs, what was the reason for blowing up a lake?
@Cederq: Why we run blowing-up-lake videos all the time here! Just kidding! :-)
I assume the lake was released from the grip of ice to facilitate the flow of water to/from a river feeding it.
This may have occurred in Norway, but I am not sure. Looked like a fjord to me.
I would love to read the backstory on what happened. Is there a place to check it out?
It did look cool anyway, what I was trying to figure out is why the lake surface cotinued to role and boil after the detonation.
I enjoy your commentaries and insight, I check you with along Sipsey Street, WRSA, Survival Blog
First thing in the morning and trough out the day.
@sdkar. I am curious, too, but I simply found the video on a favorite blog of mine and imported it to mine.
I have no idea when and where in occurred. For me, it was a reminder of how powerful nature is.
@Cederq: You demonstrate excellent judgment! :-)
I am delighted you are a regular visitor and reader.
Clearly, some people have too much time on their hands...And too much explosives at hand.
Blow up the local Mall?
Cool your jets, Ronbo. This was clearly a well thought out, planned and necessary job to clear the lake of ice.
Sorry...I was only joking.
I should have :-) after my remark.
I'm sure there is a very good reason for blowing up an inoffensive lake.
i dont know why they do this but they speak Norwegian for sure
this was pritty impressive ;)
Here's a link to the YouTube video with an explanation of what was going on and why they blew it.
I too, was fascinated by the repercussions, which is what I assume they were. Resonant shock waves in the water perhaps? That must have been VERY deep water for them to be at such a slow frequency ...
