The interval between eggs #1 and #2 was approximately 58 hours.  Intervals between later eggs tend to be a bit longer, but perhaps egg #4, if there is to be one, will arrive Monday evening.   Be sure to check in on the LIVE! video feed streaming from the 18th floor of the Capitol, go there now by clicking HERE.
