So it turns out that Mars will not be the same size as the moon on the 27th. Oh well. What're you gonna do? Find something else to do at midnight i guess.
ConstructionFest has been subdued slightly this week. After not being able to make a right turn, and then not being able to make a left turn, (I'm glad we didn't try to go out in the interim!) the road is open in both directions. There's no asphalt and there are several dips and holes but the road is open. Hopefully paving will happen while we're out.
I have had my eyes examined and my sight is 20/15. That explains all the comments i get similar to "how can you see that?" Not really important but i felt like being superior for a moment.
