GOOD. I need a blast of ice cold air for a few nice nights of astronomy. We need a really good 2-3 week freeze to kill at the bugs.

If you have a minute, please tell me something about the meteor shower this week. Thanks. Use a new thread lil me. Also, what's with all the snow. Up here in Canada, where we were once known for being snowy, nada. Except maybe tomorrow night.

Posted. Geminids are always a good show because the meteoroids are rock, not comet gas. No moon this year and for most of us the skies will be clear. I am going to try to get out and watch a little bit.

I hear a good folk remedy for getting rid of bed bugs is to open you windows for half a week straight when the weather stays below zero. Whether or not that actually works, I don't know, but it beats some alternative methods in terms of safety.
