It’s been foggy mornings and sunny afternoons for the past while. Not much exciting in the weather department.

I guess that means that Spring is coming. I saw daffodils poking up around our house last week. Lots of little green sprouts here and there.

If you didn’t already know, there will be a Lunar Eclipse on Wednesday! It is a total lunar eclipse! The last one until 2010. If our current weather pattern of foggy mornings and clear evenings holds up we should be able to get a good look at it!

The eclipse starts at about 7PM PST… apparently just before the moon rises here, so keep your eyes locked just North of Mt. Arrowsmith and you should see a Bad Moon Rising! 😉

UPDATE: 4:34PM Wednesday Well, if we can just hold on to this little bit of clear sky for a couple more hours we’ll have ourselves a wonderful eclipse tonight. Everyone work your magic and hold off that approaching front!
