The Leonids Missed the Mark

Almost every year since I knew about them, the Leonids have arrived, or been around for the morning of my birthday. I remember sitting out on a front lawn, very early one morning (think 2-3 am) watching the meteor shower greet the day of my birth.

While obviously not just for me, I like to think of them as God's little gift to me, to let me know, "hey, happy birthday!" It's cool. ^_^

Buuuut, this year, oh, no, they HAD to go and come early! Silly Leonids! Now, granted, it's been kinda rainy and overcast now and then over the last few days, so the chances of actually seeing them were slim, but they actually were set to appear early yesterday morning and this morning. *sniffs* Sad!!!

So, I will have not Leonids to greet me tomorrow morning, but that's okay. I'll have next year. I hope.

Happy Birthday - fiery balls of rock and ice or not.

We didn't get to see much because of the weather.

I'm totally jealous! That would be a such a cool thing to look forward to for your birthday. I think all that marks my birthday is start of mosquito season... :D

Happy Birthday!!!
