Space Shuttle Launch
I finally got caught up on my sleep. The shuttle Endeavour launched Tuesday morning at 2:28AM. We live only a few miles from Kennedy Space Center. Whenever there is a launch we jump in the car and drive about 6 miles to the Indian River in Titusville. You can look right across the river and see the launch pad. Bill's cousin and his wife are visiting from Connecticut so we had to go see this one even though it meant getting up in the middle of the night. Night launches are awesome! It's like sunrise in a few seconds. Then the sound hits you.. a low rumble that builds until you feel it. It was over in a few minutes but worth getting up and driving to the river.
