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.

SmokeStack Gone.

Well -- it was a crazy minute, but the Smoke Stack at the Mississippi River at the St. Paul High Bridge came falling down. It was described in the article as an implosion, but the way the video is shown, it seems very likely that they meant for it to tumble like a felled tree, as it did. The smoke stack held a falcon box for several years, but that box was removed in January before the falcons returned from their winter journey....

SmokeStack Implosion I am planning on going to the office, and filming this from the tallest building in St. Paul. I Think it will be really cool to see. It's early though. I've never seen anything like this in person though. I worry about "foggers and water cannons" obstructing my view though.
