Too bad the moon is near full. We will miss a lot of the faint ones.

Yes, big bummer.

We also have alot of clouds right now in southwest Indiana.

The Perseids were always my favorite. When I was on tv, I would always take a 2 week vacation during the first 2 weeks of August(we were not allowed to take off July because it was a ratings month).

We traveled to places like Canada or Minnesota or out West, where the visibility was awesome.

Thankfully they never sell July anymore so We can take off. But that sounds great, Canada to see this would be awesome. By the way, some big storms to your NW moving SE, but I'm sure you knew that.

I'm in the county farthest south, closest to the Ohio River here in Evansville and am thinking these storms may not get this far south but they could still curve farther south.

They probably will stay just to your north. But it won't help with your viewing potential. I imagine more cirrus coming your way.
