The Shuttle Launch Was Not To Be

Unfortunately the Hat Tricks missed the launch of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, originally scheduled for Sunday morning, February 5, 2010. The launch was pushed back 24 hours about 30 minutes before the 4:39 A.M. launch time. Given the uncertainty that the new launch time would actually happen, plus the cold weather made our decision to leave the campsite Sunday morning and travel to Sarasota. The Hat Tricks found out that our two young children did not do well in this environment so, unfortunately, we missed the opportunity to see Endeavour launch. According to the Hat Trick's brother-in-law it was fantastic when it launched around 4:00 A.M. Monday morning.

We did get some photos and will post them as soon as possible...only a few more opportunities left in the Space Shuttle program (no more night launches) so we'll see if there is a chance to see a launch before it ends.
