Transit of Clouds in the Hudson Valley

Well it's highly unlikely I'll have a transit of Venus observation later today.  It's currently (1:30 pm) 100% overcast and here's the Accuweather forecast for this evening for where I was having the observation.

I'll still go in around 5:30 to see what it looks like - maybe the clouds will miraculously part allowing the Sun to shine through (or, more likely, I'll be standing forlornly in the rain looking up at gray clouds).  Goddamn Hudson Valley weather - it always seems to be cloudy when somthing interesting is going on in the sky.

You can always watch it virtually.  NASA has a live stream from Mauna Kea, Hawaii and Slooh will have live streams cohosted by Woodstock, NY resident Bob Berman.
