I tried to witness the meteor shower. Everyone else was asleep after midnight on Saturday, but I figured Sam would be willing to go out with me and wait. No such luck! After about 2 minutes he wanted go back inside. Meteor showers are not like Aurora Borealis - you have to be patient, willing to stay out there maybe an hour...certainly more than five or ten minutes, which is all I could manage. The skies were clear and the constellations easily visible, but no meteors. Oh well.
