C3 I hope you got to see the eclipse. I for one had overcast and stormy skies. No viewing from my back porch.

I didn't see it either but the sky did have a reddish cast to it. Too much cloud cover as Mother Nature was dropping a load of snow on us last night.

Glass woke my a** up and dragged me out to look at the moon and damn if it wasne't blanked out buy something else and had a redish cast to it. There were also a bunch of shooting stars crossing the sky. Would have been pretty cool if I was awake.

It sounds like a beautiful sight. I wish I could have seen that. (The eclipse, not YOU.)

Yep- pretty neat. Remember one on a warm summer night in the early 80s- my lady and I took a bottle of wine, laid out in loungers on the back deck. Moon looked like steel being heat treated- dull red.
