Yes indeed bravo, Paul!  Conditions also look good for observations
from north Florida in the morning, although temps are expected to be
around 23 degrees F!  That would be almost balmy for Iowa or Oklahoma
this time of year, but not for Florida.  Our tropical boides just
aren't used to that kind of thing...;o).  I'll be out anyway in my
trusty zero degree sleeping bag.  here's hoping the Quads kick some
serious tail...;o).  Good luck to all who brave the northern winter to
observe them!
