Last Shower of the Year

So this week the Geminids occur on Thursday night / Friday morning. This fantastic meteor shower is the last one in 2012 and should be a great show. Over 60 meteors per hour and a new moon are about as good as it gets. Last year, almost every meteor shower occurred during a full moon.
BUT…and this is a big BUT, the weather reports are predicting rain. At first it was thunder showers and 100% cloud cover. But the reports are changing. This afternoon, they called for a clear patch at 4 am on friday morning. Of course, there was 30% chance of rain at 1 am and clouds at 7 am in this same report; so it may have been an error. But I’m going to be an optimist and hope for a clear sky. I want to see some meteors; a great ending for the year.

Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
