I happen to live where the eclipse will be total. We expect a hoard of people in the area. In fact, all the hotels, motels, and campgrounds are booked solid. I plan to stay home and off the road 'cause sure as shootin' some idiot will be driving and look at it and cause a crash. And speaking of idiots, a friend of mine overheard someone whine..."why couldn't it come on the weekend?" And this person votes?
My daughter has a dental appointment so is bringing the kids up so they can see it. She has access to the good glasses to view with. I plan on recording it on the tv. That way I can enjoy it as many times as I please even though seeing it for real will be cool. There is a possibility of cloud cover here but the effect will still be there with the sky going dark.
It will be interesting to see if the animals react to it. My two cats will probably think it's time for bed and will want their treats. Surprise!
Anyone out there going to do anything special?
