At work this week, one of my co-workers and I were doing survey's on tribal land. This big ol' spider was sitting in the middle of its web strung between two sagebrush bushes. We almost walked right between them. There's nothing in this photo for scale, but the abdomen is about an inch long.

Shouldn't That Sign Read "Road Closed"?

Everyone on site had to move away about a quarter of a mile. I wanted to film the action so I climbed a hill with a couple other guys to get a better view. One of the trucks from the construction company drove back towards the well pad and I assumed they wouldn't blow everything up until they came back so I turned around to take in the scenery. My assumption was wrong. No sooner had I turned my back when a sound like a hundred cannons going off at the same time erupted from what seemed like directly behind me. I nearly peed my pants. One of the guys there said "I don't care how many times you've seen that or how old you are, that's still cool."This week, I was on another monitor. Unknown to me, a nearby well pad was also being blasted. I wasn't ready for that one either. Once again, peeing in my pants was a possibility. Once again, I didn't get to film it. About a half hour later, I noticed small tan spots all over my shirt, pants, and hat. That dust was solid rock not too long ago.Tear the roof off the sucka,
