Lunar Eclipse

I'm thinking about staying up to see the lunar eclipse tonight.  First one on a solstice in just about forever.

It starts here on the East Coast around 1:32AM and will reach totality between 2:40AM and 3:50AM.  But it's real fucking cold out tonight.  And that's smack-dab in the middle of dream-time.  I dunno.

There probably will be some pretty good pictures of it on the Internet tomorrow, right?


Happy first day of Winter everyone!

It was one of those tossing and turning can't sleep nights for me, and at 3:25 a.m., I remembered the eclipse and half-heartedly peeked out my bedroom window.. but it was overcast and damn freezing out, too. So I just tried to go back to sleep. LAME ME!

Merry Christmas to you and Gia and kitties!

Happy 1st day of winter!
It was snowing last night, so I couldn't have seen it if I tried. I had a HELLUVA time trying to sleep, though.

Holly - I couldn't pry myself out of my toasty bed to check it out.

Kate - Thanks! Merry Christmas to you too!

Sybil - I suggest bourbon. Works for me.

I missed it to due to cold temps outside, but the pics on the web sure were nice to see.

I had no idea this was going to happen. That night, my son, who normally sleeps through the night acted like a total WHACK JOB all night... not crying but just getting up to play and laughing and acting WEIRD. Next day, we found out there was a lunar eclipse.
I'm not saying they're related, but I *will* say, he slept fine the next night and there hasn't been a repeat of that behavior since.
