    Rain would be nice, it would get rid of the snow and the temperature would soar to a balmy 6*C.

    Well, Olddogg60 might be on to something here. After terrible thunderstorms here last Saturday and Sunday, and overcast Monday and Tuesday, the sky is cloudless today, bright blue, and lots of sunshine. So, I may actually get a scope out tonight after a long hiatus. Thanks, and best wishes for better weather to all.

    Congratulations David. Although three weeks late, it finally arrived. Today was a fantastic day here in Florida. The rains have gone away, the sky is blue again, and the temps are just perfect. Unfortunately, the pollen has also arrived. Greenish yellow powder on the windshields, everybody is sneezing like crazy everyday. We go through this every year, but it usually finally settles down a good bit by the end of April. Best of regards, and best wishes for clear skies.
