No Show

Vero Beach

Two nights ago, I got up at 4AM to watch the Lenoid Meteor Shower. I did the prep. On the web, I looked up what part of the sky to watch and when. I also gave my eyes 15 minutes to adjust to the darkness.

Alas, the meteor shower seemed to be a no show for me. I didn't get to see any at all. I did discover one thing though. Even though we were anchored on the west bank of the Indian River, behind the barrier islands, and 3 miles from the beach, I could still plainly hear the sound of the surf. I was surprised.

It probably means that the backround noise of traffic is very little at 4Am, and also probably means that the waves were high. Indeed, for the past 10 days the surf has been up because of Atalantic storms thousands of miles away from here.
