Here on the East Coast, the clouds cleared out brilliantly (there's nothing like watching silver-blue-and-white clouds race along in full moonlight) in time to see the eclipse of the moon. Our four-year-old son was already asleep, exhausted from a day in the snow, but our nine-year-old daughter joined us on the front stoop to gaze at the marvel through binoculars. We didn't stay out long, though. It was freezing (below, actually)!
