I'm glad I didn't quit at the last moment - when I went to bed, there was a fog cover that looked pretty grim - sleeping in sounded good. The clerk at the Tomales Bay Resort said "my weather guy says it'll be clear, so it'll be clear. he's always right". He was right about today. Except for a few low clouds (which I actually like), it was pretty cleared up.
This is during the Geminids Meteor shower's "peak". There were a lot of shooting stars that didn't show up well, but that monster on the right was the baddest-@$$ meteor I've ever seen. You can see about 1/5th of it in this pic, and it had broken up in at least three pieces. It left a contrail that hung around for 10 minutes. Really cool - now I'm going to get some sleep.
