Transit of Mercury less than 2 hours away

From the political to the celestial… I’m off to Chicago to see the Transit of Mercury at the Adler Planetarium. The transit starts at 2:12 PM EST (1:12 PM CST); I’ll probably get there around 2:30 PM CST, and will get to watch until sunset at 4:37 PM CST. Then I head to Midway to catch my 8:50 PM CST flight to Denver. (I have tickets to the ND-Air Force game on Saturday, and I’m heading out a few days early for interviews and such; I applied to a bunch of clerkships in Denver. Don’t ask for details about that, as they won’t be forthcoming. :) I’m scheduled to land in Denver at 10:20 PM MST. Becky will join me there tomorrow night, and of course we’ll be staying with Kristy and Vikki. Woohoo!

Anyway, the weather in Chicago is looking good for a transit viewing. Yay!

    Do you think AF has a shot in beating ND. I mean they almost upset Tennessee

    Randy, yes, I do think Air Force has a chance. If both teams play their best, ND will win. But if ND sleepwalks into this game, they could lose. Hopefully that won’t happen.
