Keeping in mind that if the soil holds much residual moisture, the dobs will tend to dew-up. ________________________________ From: pasmembers-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pasmembers-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Don Boyd Sent: Wednesday, February 20, 2013 1:41 PM To: pasmembers@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [pasmembers] Re: Storm clouds & Wet ground - input needed The weather radar show the rain to be mostly to the east of us...we might get a little more rain today but not much. For tomorrow night look it looks like 30-50% cloud cover with 50% at the start and clearing to about 30%. As for cancelling I am stil;l not certain...I say we give it a few mopre hours and see if we get anymore rain and check the forecast for tomorrow.

Are we thinking of canceling? It is easier for me to cancel it now, and get in touch with those who RSVP'd, than to wait until tomorrow to do it. What is the verdict? Jenny, do you know how wet it is over by the Telescope Dome? And at this moment, we have 2 RSVP's for the star party ONLY. Who is bringing their telescopes in this wet? Give me your input.
