Eclipse tonight? + feel like I've been on the moon myself

Hi all,

I feel like I've been flying around like a moth. It doesn't seem like I've gotten anything done. The garden is dying, except for the huge weeds and a zucchini that has been hiding out. I'm thinking of turning it into a wagon for my grandchildren. A few wheels and a sturdy rope ought to do it.

September flew by with quilt show, program for a guild at the other end of the state (almost exactly 400 miles from my house, the garden and doctor's appointments. Sheesh--you know when you're getting older when the drives seem longer and you make it through all the waiting room magazines.

October promises to be even wilder. A business trip, quilt retreat, a trip to visit the grandkids. Can't wait!

Back to the lunar eclipse--we should be able to see part of it but clouds have been arriving and leaving all day. Let's hope for leaving in time to see the sky.

The moon was visible early in the evening but by the time it was "show time" it had moved behind some clouds. I kept checking on it but no show.

Carol Ann--you win the prize for the best story!

I'm so jealous of everyone who got to see it. It stayed cloudy all night!

Yeah, Pam, but today I'll have to vacuum little shreds of lettuce and cheese out of my new Subaru! LOL  It has a "moon roof" though, so we had a good look.  This morning the clear, white moon is just setting in the west from the window of my sewing room.

I was able to see part of the eclipse, but by the time the moon turned really red we had too many clouds in the sky.

It was clear in our part of northern California also!  Fascinating -- it was a very long eclipse.  DH and I drove up on a ridge to the east at sunset; had tacos & soda in the car and watched it go through the phases.

It's totally clear in western Colorado and I have been mesmerized by this blood moon! What an event!!! The moon has been covered much longer than I thought it would be. I'll never forget this. I am so grateful there were no clouds here and I got to see it.

It's beautiful in Syracuse!!!

I was concerned about cloud cover, too, but hit the jackpot.  I have an amazing view right out the window of my sewing room :-D
