04:03 am - Clive IA Shoot
 This last weekend I worked the fireworks shoot for the Clive Festival in Clive IA.

On the up side of this shoot, I got to "push the button" on the 1 minute teaser shoot we did on Friday night.  So when it came time to shoot I was the one actually firing the shells at the control panel.  This is the first time I've done that for a professional shoot.

On the down side it was HOT!  95+ degrees with 80+% humidity.  The heat index on Saturday when we were setting up was something like 110.  To say we were all miserable during setup would be an understatement.  By the end of setup I'd pushed myself as far as I could get away with.  I was feeling dizzy and nauseous and ended up having to sit in the truck with the AC on for a while.  I was sooo happy to get back to the hotel and get into the shower.

At the festival they had the worlds coolest slip and slide.  

Yes, they are wetting down the slide by spraying water on it from a fire truck hose.

Unfortunately it was so hot out side that walking back up to my hotel room (3rd floor, out-door stairs) to change into a swim suite, walking back down and over to the slide, and then back to the hotel after sounded like too much work.

That slip and slide is totally awesome. (and then I read the rest of your post) bummer that it was too much work to go down it.
