yays, we were watching that last night in the backyard over beers... had some high school buddies by... like a shooting star every 8-10 minutes

last year I drove way past Guelph to find a window in the clouds but only got to see one leonid (though I was happy to get at least one!)

Strange,we were out until 1am last night in Dunnville on lake Erie and the cloud cover/rain kept us from seeing anything from 10pm to then,guess we should have remained in steeltown.....

Guess you guys got really lucky,CH news was saying it was a shame we didn't have clearer sky's last night.I must know your secret...

Awww, well we're off to Rockton today/tonight for a hike,BBQ, clothing exchange (barter/trade gathering) etc and beers,perhaps we'll hit it tonight.
