The Shuttle Launched

Sorry, no pictures.

thejeepjunkie, TheGoodAttorney and this olelongrooffan were sitting on the front porch of the Taj Mahal this evening, taking an opportunity to enjoy Happy Hour and to Celebrate Life, while waiting for the Shuttle to launch.

I logged on the the NASA website and to to check on the status of the launch.

As the front porch of the Taj Mahal faces east, we didn't notice a rapidly approaching thunderstorm coming in from the west. It wasn't until we heard over the loudspeaker of a Volusia County Beach Patrol truck driving down the beach that a thunderstorm was approaching and everyone needed to leave the beach that we knew a storm was coming.

It was due to this cloud cover providing storm we didn't get to see the Shuttle launch, although we heard the boom.

But just to let you know, hearing our weather forecast from a beach driving Beach Patrol truck lets thejeepjunkie, The GoodAttorney and this olelongrooffan

Celebrate Life.
