    No spring for us in Northern NB today. It started snowing late last night and it's still coming down 20 hours later. Had to clear the driveway twice today already.

    So far here it is springing at 15 gusting to 25 with rain. Thanks for the update though David. I wasn't even thinking about spring. Of course I have a scope in the brown truck today so I shouldn't expect nice weather.

    I guess I spoke to soon. Just went out to do a cloud check and it was Cold out there...Went in and pulled up tonights forcast and our low here is going to be 25 !! Thats a 30 degree drop from the high today. Oh well, I'll bundle up I guess. Can't hardly believe it is dropping 30 degrees, Almost like someone Jinxed me with a telescope delivery or something.

    You're hosting Calgary at Bridgestone Arena... looks like you've been saddled with our weather too!

    It is a Celestron 102 refractor that was on close-out at OPT. Great deal on 102mm OTA It's not big enough to hold the clouds for long. I hope.
