Possible meteor storm tonight?

Okay, okay, it might be a dud but tonight could be the meteor shower of the decade.  According to Spaceweather.com, it could be somewhere between a complete dud and a meteor "storm."  

 

In the late 90's, there was a predicted meteor storm and, if you weren't socked in, it was spectacular.   I had total fog with an otherwise bright Jupiter being the only thing visible.  25 miles away, a coworker said that there were so many, that her and her husband woke the kids to watch it.  It could hit 400 per hour - that one hit 1000.

Nothin but clouds here, Dave.  Darn it.  I was looking forward to it.  But, once again, disappointment.  My little black cloud continues to hover and follow me around....literally.

You didn't miss anything, Phil.  It was a dud.  I saw specks that might have been a straight on shot of a couple into the atmosphere but Spaceweather.com said that there were many but they were just too small to be seen.
