I sympathise, Paul. A non-astronomer friend of mine recently expressed surprise, and not a little dismay,that I intended to go out in the middle of the night and stand in sub-zero temperatures for a few hours observing the night sky.
I explained to him that to be an astronomer in Britain you have to be a masochist!
