The Astronomers Weather Lament

Clear sky in the morning, astronomers take warning
Clear sky at night, only when the moon is bright
Clouds at night when there is no moon in sight
Why can't Larry Sprinkle get this stuff right?
To heck with him AND his weather satellite!


"Astronomers will drive hundreds of miles just to look at clouds!"

The late CVAC member Jimmy Tillman
