Perseid Meteor Showers

Well, we weren’t planning on being up until 2 am to see the peak of the Perseid Meteor Showers last night, but we were... Cami and I have the rare opportunity this week to do things like that while the kiddos are visiting Grandma Cherie and Grandpa Phil at their house. So, we were walking to go see the meteor shower around midnight when we noticed another RD in the process of moving his office… Of course, nobody expects help moving at midnight, so we figured "hey, why not?" and lent a hand for an hour or so -- so, by the time we made it to where we were going to watch the Perseids from, it was after 1, and we hung out until sometime around 2. While we didn’t see as many as I’ve seen in the past, there was a pretty steady series, including an amazing one that left a ghostly trail across the sky for a few seconds as it streaked through. Pretty amazing stuff...
