I'm glad to see everyone returned safe. There was some significant 
lightning over on the west side this afternoon and early evening. You 
folks deserve some kind of award. Maybe an astronomer's umbrella or 
something. :-)

Actually I know if one does not try, one will miss some good 
opportunities, however, sometimes one gets wet.

I'll try to make it over tomorrow. If it's clear, I'll be out in my 
observatory, however.
