Have you noticed that whenever there is some sort of astrological or solar-system-type event coming (eclipses, meteor showers, Haley’s Comet), that your local weather guys change from being the nice, awkward-segue-guys to guilt-tripping threateners, as it were. Example, last night, we were informed not just about a lunar eclipse that was to take place between 9-10pm, but the emphasis of the whole message was that another such event won’t take place until 2010. The rather mole-looking weather guy actually walked toward the camera and turned threateningly serious at the moment he revealed we won’t be able to see this event again until 2010. I found myself meekly walking toward the east side of our house 10 minutes later to stare up into the sky because I found I just could not live with the guilt of missing this event and having to wait another 2 years.
