I've finally reached a point where I don't even care anymore:
Uncomfortable cold in winter.
Blood sucking mosquitos in summer
Endless supply of clouds
Then there are rare nights like tonight when the temperature is comfortable, no work tomorrow it's clear, good seeing forecast and the failure to launch mid twenties neighbor kid still living with mommy and daddy next door decides to have a campfire in the driveway with one of those lawn fire pit things. It's an automatic no go unless I want to smell like an ash tray and spend the next day cleaning ash off my scope. Last night, similar conditions and wouldn't you know, some knuckle head down the street had a big fire in his shed, fire department and everything. Guess who was down wind of all the black smoke. Last Sunday night, good conditions for astronomy and for a massive fish fly hatch. Swarms of bugs. Tomorrow night will be cloudy and guarantee, there won't be anyone or anything going on in the hood.
