Lack of Sol on November 14

Hmmm, today is not a good day for those with solar panels!

1993
The solar eclipse slipped over from the Northern Hemisphere into our territory at daybreak.

2012
Seems we may have a repeat of the solar eclipse.

Further future solar eclispes are listed HERE.

1942
Another possibility to lack of sunshine was the following...
The Combined Chiefs of Staff approved that “Gas warfare will be undertaken by both the United States and British Commonwealth Forces on the decision of a representative especially designated for that purpose by its highest governmental authority (eg: General MacArthur)”

1850
Melbourne's Princes Bridge Mark II was opened on this day.

I seem to remember that some southern towns contributed to the construction cost of Princes Bridge, possibly Brighton and Moorabbin.

Or it could just be cloudy. As it is here.

Were we supposed to have a solar eclipse today? I didn't notice one. Blue skies all day here in Adelaide.

I think you are correct, Andrew, probably as it was the main thoroughfare for goods to market or such?

Drat those cloudy clouds, EC!
