I want to hear a National Geographic film voiceover on this one . . .
Here we see a semi-tamed Milotis Housis Catious. Also known as Milo, the house cat. He is noticeably curious about the strange vibrations and noise he is hearing. It becomes obvious that he has not experienced the environmental changes brought about when the humans of his herd turn on the sound system to enjoy herd movie night in the past. He stands alert for nearly two full minutes before being distracted by the crinkle of his snack bag.

This was at about 12.5 feet above normal. It stopped at 14 and has started receding. My fire pit is under there somewhere...maybe. Other areas were not so lucky.
