SmokeStack Gone : The Video

So, here is the video that I took of the St Paul Smoke Stack falling...

Wait for it to load - Action starts during minute 5, so forward to there (half-way point). I haven't had a chance to edit it down.


  1. Just got home ... it's quite surreal to see a smokestack fall like a redwood tree. Thanks for posting that.

    I'll try to watch entire aftermath later.

  2. It's amazing to watch all that dust slowly drift in your direction, covering the landscape. Can you imagine all the soot and smoke from over the years that was part of that dust?

  3. Vahl, (I want to type Valh) -- Watch the top end hit the ground, you'll note a particularly black plume of soot come from that place. Nasty, nasty, nasty.
