    Voni just got a few good photo shots of the eclipse. I watched in awe, of it and her.

    It was 10 degrees with about 1 inch new snow perfectly clear, 10 mph wind, I should have got a real camera out.

    It was below zero here (F) with a nasty north wind.

    Too cold for me or the camera...

    Paul, was Voni taking pictures of the moon, or mooning you?
