    Default Clear in NC last night



    It was a little too cool here last night for the likes of me. I couldn't resist getting a shot of Orion. Orion.jpg

    Fun image, Doug! That is similar to my only view last night as I left work about 2230 hrs. and walked to my car.

    Nice one. I can see a bit of a hint of the Flame Nebula, as well! Pretty cool.

    Yep, I'm in Raleigh and I'm getting tired of the clouds! But at the same time I wonder how long I would last in this temperature!

    As I walked my dog I noticed it was clear, clear to me it was cold!

    As far as the snow goes, I'll believe it when I see it. The weather app shows snowflakes from 7PM to 11PM, that alone makes question if we will get any at all! ; )
