    Finally de-iced enough and had power and heat again after 5 bad days. As
    much as I like the dark, it was unnerving when it wasn't by choice. Last
    night, USA 193 screamed by, up to -1 mag in NE, and ~23s early:

    Lacrosse 3 was "chased" by one of Kevin's APT tanks (28926) for a naked eye
    treat.

    Notes:
    1) Period is length of flare
    2) Practically simultaneous flares! 
    3) Tried to count all the flashes - I think this was an error.
    4) No sign of flaring yet like SKYMED1 (7-23A) but wait till it is in the
    west.
