This year's Full Cold Moon, which also happened to fall on the Winter Solstice, was also a total eclipse. Too bad I didn't get to see most of it because of clouds. What's the deal? We get all this dry weather, with not a cloud in the sky, until the one night where I don't want there to be clouds.
I heard on the weather report the other day that this has been the driest October through December since 1950. We haven't gotten significant rainfall since September. However, the weather gods might pull through for me a give me a bit of moisture this Christmas week. That would be a great gift.
This morning the sidewalks and street were all wet, so we got some rain overnight, but it wasn't enough to refill the rain barrels, so it must have not been much (I ought to get a rain gage). Still, I guess it's better than nothing, and we have more in the forecast this week.
