Weather today:  Record high temperature for Feb, 74 deg!  
Very windy.  Mostly cloudy.  
However, during brief breaks in clouds, I did get to see some bright flashes.

Nothing seen several minutes before 10 pm EST.
At 10 pm saw flashes to about mag 4 or a little brighter, using 20x80 
Period about 9 seconds.  Visible for a few minutes.  
More clouds.  1027 pm - No flashes seen.

Unfortunately, due to the clouds, more accuracy was not possible.

I'll be at a Mensa meeting and  won't be able to observe again till 
Sunday at the earliest.
