In a nutshell, that's why I love astronomy. I am often impatient or hurried, but not at the EP. I go out to my in-laws, a fantastically "darker" site, and it is hardly worth it to me to set up a telescope even so, because I'm always on a time-line out there. I take the polluted city skies instead because I can sit under them for hours without noting the time.

On the other hand, this is really bumming me out about winter. It is so cloudy that I hardly have any observing nights, and when I do have one, it is always the race to get lined up before my extremities start to freeze. Not patience-inducing at all.
