For the first time in ages, I have been shut out by the weather for an entire month. My last observation report is dated October 30, 2008. The whole month of November has been cloudy. We've already had snow twice and are expecting something like 6-8 inches on the ground by Monday evening.
I've managed to keep very busy, getting a lot done at work and spending the week around full moon in Cambridge at AAVSO headquarters for meetings with the Director and staff. But enough is enough! I need some starlight to get my attitude right again.
I'd even settle for a couple so-so nights to complete shaking down the CCD telescope. Even that looks unlikely in the next week or so.
The upside is I'll have a little more time to devote to the blog in the coming week. I have a half dozen articles in various stages of completion, and I hope to publish a few of them soon.
