  1. These are incredible - thanks for sharing. Nice to see the night's been awhile! Think the weather will ever clear up?

  2. Nancy,

    Weather cleared tonight and I got out. The Herschel 400 I need didn't come up until after 1:00a.m. and I have a root canal and some dental surgery in the a.m. so I only observed from 5:00p.m. until 11:00p.m. Good night though. I'll post more later. Hope things are well with you and John.
