Don't Miss Out

Hope you had a nice weekend. We are going to have a total lunar eclipse this week. It will take place early Tuesday morning and you will most likely have to set your alarm clock for this one. A lunar eclipse happens when the moon travels through the Earth's shadow, dimming the sunlight that hits the moon's surface. The total eclipse will start at 4:22 a.m. Tuesday and will reach its peak at 5:37 a.m. The total eclipse will end at 6:22 a.m. Skies will be clear, so we shouldn't have anything obscurring our view of the eclipse.

I've always been fascinated by these types of events. Meteor showers are also fun to watch, but they can be frustrating as they definitely test your patience.

We are entering one of my favorite times of the year. The weather pattern begins to show signs of change, resulting in cooler air from Canada and hopefully, some much needed rain to help revive things after the summer heat. We should see a decent change later in the week with a cold front arriving Wednesday, ushering in some modified, Canadian air that will drop our highs back into the 80s. We are also anticipating lower humidity by the end of the week. Wouldn't that be nice. Another reason this is my favorite time of the year... football season begins. Have a good week.

Ross,
Love watching you on tv. Just curious...are you single? I only ask because I have a "friend" who is single as well, and she thinks you're really cute. We watch you on the weekends all the time! Oh, and we love seeing Millie as well! So come on Ross, spill the beans! Are you single?
