But then maybe not, if Yellowstone Caldera is on the verge of a terminal event. More likely, this time it won't produce anything worse than a massive earthquake that will wipe out Billings, Montana. You know, the place LJ moved its servers last month (because San Francisco was so earthquake-prone.) Anyway, I'm glad I got to see the meteor before the world ended.
In fact, if the end holds off a few more days, I might get to see more. This year's Quadrantid meteor shower could be a good one. It will be dark here, since the moon will already be down before the peak comes, early in the morning of January 3, but rain is forecast for Friday, so it might still be cloudy early Saturday. Hope not.
Oh, head got yanked successfully this afternoon. Finally.
