Launching tomorrow!

I am very excited for this launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour. Astronaut Barbara Morgan will be flying in the same seat position during launch as Christa McAuliffe was during Challenger's launch in 1986, and the crew will be working hard to install a solar array segment and other hardware to the International Space Station. We're scheduled to launch at 6:36pm tomorrow. It didn't rain in the evening today so I am hoping the weather will be in our favor tomorrow. The heat, however, is something that I know we won't be able to dodge. Seriously, it's been disgustingly hot in Florida. :(

That's awesome that you're so close and get to watch this event. I'm sure the weather in Florida isn't fun right now. I've heard a lot of people complaining about Florida this summer. But before you do, remember Phoenix, AZ.

Right now we're in the monsoon. It' sabout 105F outside. And the humidity is very high. So it's probably about equal to a little more severe here than it is there. I feel for you!
