The Nap, and The Rain
So I was in the Hartness House astronomy workshop all day today, and there were wonderful presenters from all over the United States, talking about solar astronomy. But all day in a room listening to lectures does make one sleepy at the end of the day. So I headed out to the car during the start of the cocktail hour, to grab 40 winks. I woke up with the rain pouring down on the car - I could barely see 50 feet the rain was so heavy. I thought, "Well, I guess I either will miss cocktails, or get soaked" so I stayed in the car and waited for the rain to stop. Suddenly, as the rain was ending I saw this out my car window. I quickly rolled down the window, and shot two frames, and then the rays of the sun were gone, as the last of the rain stopped. I lucked out!
