It Was a Sunny Day (Redux) 
20th-Feb-2008 04:20 pm
For the first time in some time, it is a bright, clear, sunny (but really cold!) day here in Chicagoland. The air is clear enough that I can not only clearly see the colors of the buildings downtown from my office window, but I can see the antenna towers on the tops of the Sears Tower and John Hancock buildings.

That'll do until something warmer comes along.

In other developments, I finally did get the new tire(s) on Monday and the contractor is coming to install the new garage door opener tomorrow which will be none too soon, as the garage is basically inoperable for daisy_knotwise until that's done. I'm tall enough to open the door and latch it to the opener, but Gretchen's just a bit shorter. :)

Update: And now a bright orange full moon is rising over the skyscrapers as it heads toward tonight's total lunar eclipse. That'll work too.

I'd hoped to see the eclipse tonight; we have snow instead.

Fortunately, most of my students are closer to you, so I'm hoping that they'll have been able to see it.

Quite possibly -- the weather around here was about as good for viewing as you could get! And as it happens, our dining room window was perfectly situated for watching the eclipse from a warm place. :)
