Really wish we were there. They cancelled the one we were hoping to see in Feb.
Don't think there will be many more opportunites left to see this.

A six foot palm from Wal-Mart would make a very festive Christmas tree
Especially if covered with FROG ornaments!

We saw one a few years back from Epcot and unfortunately could not see alot, it was a clear day and we could see a trail of smoke going up and up and up. Everybody stopped what they were doing and just starred at the sky. We thought about travelling nearer but it had been cancelled twice before and as it was soooo hot we decided against it.

We were at Animal Kingdom yesterday,we all said remember the Shuttle Launch when we pulled up in the car lot,guess what we all forgot.Not that we would have seen anything anyway as the place is surrounded by trees.
