Two Months Left To Prepare For The Big Total Solar Eclipse Which Hasn't Happened In 99 Years!

June 21, 2107 So much for my previous astrological prediction of some kind of news announcement today. Oh well, they did announce an electrical outage for a short period at the State House. That didn't stop their tongues from flapping on the roofs of their mouths, they just brought in a generator. U.S. News & World Report, 6 hours ago, MONTPELIER, VT (AP) "Power has been restored to the VT Statehouse following about an hour-long outage as legislators were..." So, while I was still waiting for some news on marijuana legalization, I studied other seriously important astrological issues, combined with real life Space astronomy, that yield amazing new predictions!

Brattleboro Gets Rain

Just noting for the record the rather spectacular rainfall we just experienced in Brattleboro. This was some of the hardest rain I've seen in quite a while. "Buckets!" as they like to say.

I think I saw a squirrel go by in a small boat.

Along with the rain was some rather percussive, precision thunder and lightning displays.
