Did you miss the eclipse and why did I NOT mention it?
First off, don’t worry, you didn’t miss much if anything. Secondly I didn’t mention it because, well if you look at the cartoon depicting the eclipse you’d soon ask and answer the same question I did – would it even be noticable? Probably not.
Hope everybody in the US is enjoying the holiday weekend. Even if it was the best eclipse going, it wouldn’t matter. The weather here is about as miserable as it can be – without being destructive that is – windy and rain / snow with a temperture of 6oC / 43oF. Snow? Yes, snow, not right on me yet but only a few miles away at elevation.
So everyone stay safe this weekend no matter where you are. I am going to town to get a few things I need for a project and perhaps I will start it – building a new ultra-light spinning rod. Seems like a good thing to do on a weekend like this.
