I hope it clears up by tonight. I wanted to see Mars.
Is Mars doing something interesting?

Raining off and on here. The rain is working on the snow. It still has quite a ways to go.

Yes. I don't remember exactly what it's called, but it does it once every two years. Something about the sun, earth and mars being in line and mars rising with our sunset, passing directly overhead, and setting with Wednesday's sunrise.

And then it's either this weekend or next we are supposed to get a lunar eclipse and the moon will be reddish.

Of course it is raining hard. Only because I have to go out.

But that's OK. That's why I didn't bother googling it

High of 57F today. The wind was out of the north, 20 mph, which made it feel cooler. The grass is finally starting to turn green! : )

Our nights have finally stopped dipping below the freezing mark. Now if we could get a really nice sunny warm day or two in a row.
