Day Six

Another snow day - it didn't get warm enough to melt all the ice and snow.

April and Diane made delicious potato pancakes this morning - mashed potato gems with ham flavored TVP cooked on a griddle with some oil. Awesome.

We caught up on dishes and cleaned upstairs. The hab floor was vacuumed and mopped (still doesn't look clean) and the floor turned a few shades bluer. We have a lot of dust and dirt here.

April continued with her rock analysis and Diane and I had a good observing session. Although it's 4 degrees F outside, the sky is clear and the telescope is aligned and focused! We had a couple variable stars to look at, but missed the 8:30 and 10:30 ones. Diane is going to wake up and catch one at 5:30 using the CCD camera.

We've stayed up much too late and tomorrow we are supposed to start enforcing the wake up time... zzz...
