Back to Astronomy, The Orionids meteor shower peaked yesterday. Most of the meteors I saw were to the east.

...and with Jupiter ascending, this portends a good day for 1/12th of this planet's population.  For the rest it will suck rutabagas...LOL!

US 101 is THE backbone of the Pacific coast from Bandon OR to Willets CA.  Industry, tourism and local traffic would be gone or severely crippled without it being in functioning condition in BOTH states.
