Thats right! A lunar eclipse is suppose to turn the moon red at 2am tonight. I might stay up for that. Moon looked almost full tonight. I dont believe I have ever seen the moon turn red.

And it is falling on winter solstice, so I'm hoping it is the night Cthulhu will rise from the sea.

the radio just said it begins at about 12:50 central time and goes on for about 3 hours.

Would have been my cheeks out in the cold with those tiny ice pellets hitting my face.
Yes we had another heavy snowfall here yesterday with more promised.
"Go ahead, break your promise! I would like that just fine."
This is the second noisiest time of the year at my house. October is first but plowing snow and the non-stop relay of tractors carrying the downtown snow passed the house , then pushing it over the cliff begins long before I am ready to disembark my bed.
Of course on the positive side , this makes sure I don't oversleep and totally forget to go "play" with my own snow on the sidewalks, exits, excetera....
no, it's not really a positive thing.
"Bah! Humyour bug!"

I was out around 1 but it was too cloudy too. The sky did have a red look to it though.

We were able to catch glimpses as it was beginning...then right when it got just over 3/4 covered the clouds just totally blocked it out....of course.
