I just returned from the Lowe's on Dysart road and McDowell road. looking to the west I could see some blue sky over the white tank mountains. But... (don't kill me) I could also see a large white cloud that looks nasty. I will leave at 4:30 also and being so far west (111th ave and Thomas) I should be the first in. I can still remember as Steve pointed out, the last outing with Pierre was a little cloudy. A gathering of old friends showed up and between the clouds we saw many wonderful things. This was the first outing post surgery for me and I saw the "string of pearls" heading to Jupiter at 14th mag. I hope David fares as well with his "new eyes". In short nothing ventured, nothing gained. Andrew G. -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
