I think the weather service and I are in agreement on what the word "colder" means.  However, when there is a think enough layer of clouds that only bright stars shine through, I disagree that that means it is "clear."  Also, when it is clear above the clouds, and clear below the clouds, but there is a solid horizontal layer of clouds between me and stars, that is not "Partly Cloudy."

Being a weather person is the only job I know of where you can keep your job and be wrong on your forecast 50% of the time.
Hope you had a good Thanksgiving.

We are actually celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow, when the grandkids are coming.  Today was for preparation and resting up! :)

 

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving, Rick!

BIll,
Had a great Thanksgiving with my kids and grandkids. Got my replacement Audiostar Late Friday from Meade so Saturday night I was able to train the drives using Polaris and setup everthing on the new controller for my 12" LX 90 and than used it for over 4 hours without issue.

Hi Rick,

 

Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving.  That is good news on the controller, also! :)
