    Geminid Meteor Shower: peak Dec 14; ~100/hr

    We just can't seem to get a break from the cloud cover. I did make an attempt last night around 10pm, as I noticed a few breaks in the clouds, so I ventured out. Wasn't able to see anything, and that was probably my last shot...we are SOCKED IN for the next 3 days. So bummed. Thanks for sharing with those of us under a dark cloud.

    Well, it LOOKS like snow out there! That's what my neighbor said to me the other day. It's not really snowing...we just say that here in Lanc Co.

    Comet 46P/Wirtanen

    Such an amazing shot, MJ! So jealous of the beautiful clear sky you have up there!

    Holy cow Jay, that is absolutely spectacular!!! I wish I lived somewhere that had clear skies once in a while. Thanks for sharing that pic, and also the description of hearing the ice cracking...so awesome, and appreciated!

    We Are Back!

    During the down time, as I was frantically searching for disco info, I decided to do a little research on the illustrious Accuweather and Barry Myers. Not trying to be political, and I apologize if this is out of line, but after reading a few articles on Bloomberg, it's safe to say I will NOT be joining the forums over there.....I had NO idea, and am most likely STILL rather clueless, about what's going on. A knock-down, drag-out between AW and NWS? How counterproductive is that? See what happens when I can't get to the disco? I get into all kinds of trouble.

    Local mets here calling for a "light dusting" possible tonight into tomorrow morning. Oh well, something to look at, and at least it's not rain. I'm excitedly awaiting the weekend rain fest...because it there's one thing we need more of here, it's RAIN!

    Comet 46P/Wirtanen

    Oh man, I hear ya loud and clear! I can probably count the blue sky/cloudless days we've had the past months on one hand. Some days start out nice and sunny, but by noon the clouds start rolling in, and total cloud cover by late afternoon. It's happening today...started out with beautiful, clear skies, but now clouds are moving in. Pretty sure I won't have clear skies tonight either, as they're calling for a little snow tonight into tomorrow. We have no street lights up here, so viewing of events like this is usually pretty good...except when it's always cloudy!

    I told the hubby I felt like an orphan!

    Comet 46P/Wirtanen

    Put my coat on, hood up, and was ready to look for the comet. No street lights here, but Christmas lights across the street are pretty bright. No matter...looked up, complete cloud cover.

    Comet 46P/Wirtanen

    I think I might venture out right now and see if it's clear enough to see anything. We have cloud cover so much the past few months, hard to get a cloudless sky anymore. Thanks for the pics, Jay! When the site went down I was afraid I wouldn't get to see any more of your comet pics!

    Comet 46P/Wirtanen

    Jay, for some reason I like the edited one. The surrounding stars are more visible? Not sure, but they both look great! Thanks for going out in the frigid night to get the pics!

    December 5, 2018 | Light Snow Disturbance

    I haven't been out there yet, but have checked it out on google earth...you're right, the topography is amazing! Hard to believe some of those old places haven't slid down the hill by now! She had to replace her retaining wall which cost an arm and a leg. I had no idea how steep a grade she was on until she sent pics. Unfortunately, she totalled her car last winter in a few inches of icy snow near her house. She said the roads were pretty much untreated in her area! Gotta get out there sometime!!

    My cousin lives in the South Side Slopes...she loves her 100 year old steel-workers house and her neighborhood, despite the tons of repairs she's had to do to the place. She's a transplant from Lancaster County, via NYC and Boston, and she's made Pittsburgh her home, she really enjoys the city!

    For Those Dreaming Snow

    Thanks PM! After going through the last 20 or so pages of the storm thread, this was a lovely respite!
