lunar eclipse

Well it doesn't look good for lunar eclipse viewing here in central Texas. A cold front came in and we haven't seen the sun for two days. The forecast just says cloudy with 20% chance of precipitation. ivo will be on a plane during the eclipse and might get the best view of anybody around here.

I was really looking forward to this! Oh well, I'm not complaining about the weather, I've been waiting for it to cool down a bit for months. I had pho (soup) for lunch with paradox0220 and xomox at Sagiang, the Vietnamese place across the street from work. Very spicy and good, just what is needed on a day like this!
