My 13 year old daughter Rebecca, KB0VVT, and I had intended on breaking over 
the 1000 QSO mark using low power during this contest.  We had some lightning 
and thunder on Friday night and the upper bands went almost totally dead during 
most of Saturday.  For a millisecond or so I had honestly thought that we had 
blown the front-ends out of our transceivers by operating them during the 
lightning the night before.  We started operating kind of late on Sunday 
morning because I did not know if the band disruption had dissipated.  That was 
a mistake since Sunday was a very good day for propagation.  Oh Well, maybe 
next year!
