Maybe this will make you feel a LITTLE better.
I live in a place, where the air is pretty clear, and not much light pollution.
But , My wife and I went camping, 200 miles away, at a higher elevation, (about 10,000 feet)..The air is very clear there, and it's a desert region,
very dry. Other meteor watchers were there as well...
It was overcast one night, and rained, the entire night after!!!
no meteors, but lots of lightning!...
I could have stayed home for that..
