Well, after Monday, I want to be an umbraphile. My husband and I drove over 800 miles to get to South Carolina to see the eclipse. I woke at 4:30am on the 21st to check the latest weather, found out that our site was increasing it's chances of rain, and we got up and drove to places that had better outlooks for the weather at 2:40. At noon some clouds rolled in, we saw the first half of the eclipse with wispy clouds moving across the sun for two hours. It was lovely. At 2:20 the clouds stopped moving and we had clear skies for the next hour. Couldn't have been better. We are hooked and will probably go to Texas in 2024 even though totality will be within three hours of our CT home. The weather in April is not good, so I want better odds for clear skies and open expanse for my next viewing.
oh, and eclipse people are the most excited, welcoming, and friendly people I've ever met. Even a little nicer then deadheads in the 70's.
thanks for the glasses Ryan. I'm not blind, so they must have been up to code!
