The meteors were pretty good, even though it was cold, damp, foggy, and kind of bright where we watched them. If I would have known farther in advance, I would have headed out a few hundred miles to fully enjoy them. We probably saw a hundred or so while we were out. It was hyped up to be a once in a lifetime event, but last night's experience was about on par with a few other nights I've spent outside watching meteors.
Probably the most shocking thing that night was this:
being stuck in traffic at 3:30 in the morning, trying to cross the Golden Gate Bridge back into the city along with several hundred other stargazers.
