    Rescheduled for tomorrow early AM. Or I guess the next day without clouds...

    Scrubbed today due to high upper level winds, rescheduled for Friday, same time.

    Hoping they will launch tonight, but there's a lot of high clouds right now. Setting an early alarm.

    I'm getting tired of suiting up and then standing down every day.
    You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -Frank Zappa

    Nobody would care if you stood out there in your jammies... they have the feet on them, right?

    I've been getting up at 3:45, driving over to Solomons, leaving disappointed, grab a very early bfast, fall asleep until I don't feel groggy anymore. If they don't launch tomorrow I may forgo the event.

    Just wouldn't feel right, not watching in my Junior Astronaut suit.

    Scrubbed again, this time for ships in the 2nd stage splash area.

    I've seen more sunrises this week than I have in the past 5 years...

    In better news, congrats to SpaceX for a successful re-launch of a used Dragon capsule - and a perfect landing of the 1st stage a few minutes later. I love watching that stuff.
