Meteors and Fog

Given what most of the U.S. has endured this summer, I'm not about to complain about North Coast weather. On those temperature maps, the only cool has been on a narrow strip along the West Coast, and that's us. But the same conditions that have given us August days and nights that rarely stray from the 50sF also provide plenty of fog, both high and sometimes low. And so tonight, when the absent moon makes the night sky perfect for the Perseid Meteor shower where skies are clear, it's no such luck here. Not that I've ever seen a really good Perseid, not even back in PA. But I keep hoping. It just ain't going to be this year, I guess. Good luck to you where you are!
