Dear WeatherCat observers of the skies around our weather instruments,

I had hoped to try to catch the lunar eclipse next to my anemometer, but that event mostly rained out.  Not very friendly but we need the rain.  This morning I captured this image of the clouds after the last of the storms had passed:



We will have a week to 10 days to dry out.  However, there is some hints of rain starting out February which would suit me just fine! 

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

We were luckier. It had been snowing all day but the skies parted just long enough for us to watch the entire lunar eclipse. Pretty cool.

Dear Bill and WeatherCat stargazers,

Venus (left), my anemometer and Jupiter in alignment this morning.

Now that's a very cool shot! [bounce]  Thanks for sharing!  [tup]

I've been a bit too busy but I noticed that Venus and Jupiter were aligning in the morning sky.  If we get a clear morning I'll see if I can do anything with it.  Can anyone else?

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Dear WeatherCat shutterbugs,

We have been having so much rain in Northern California that the sun has been unusually scarce.  It felt more like living in Seattle than the San Francisco Bay area!  Today we finally had a sunrise that wasn't either completely cloudless or completely clouded over.  As a result, I managed to capture this shot:



We are expecting more rain tomorrow and Tuesday though.  I can't complain, but there are plenty of Californians who getting fed up with all the soggy weather. 

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
