    I'm not Debi. My name is Steven.

    Debi left you years ago.

    Anyway, it's over here.

    The skip wasn't even very good, KFBK 1550 Sacramento and an expanded band station in/near Fresno. And lots of MINOR heterodyning.

    I was on my Sansui the whole time and I have no TV in the bedroom at the moment.

    People are already leaving the viewing spot at BSU and people in Weiser are trying to get out on the road early and beat traffic like it was a football game.

    It's back to early morning light now. We didn't have totality here and it really didn't get too dark.

    These are not pessimistic assessments, this is what I saw through my curtains and uncovered windows. SCIENCE!

    Hey! Don Henley is on ACL! You guys have fun watching the skies. I've got some bike painting to do

    Spare me from your need of emotional rescue
    I fell out of my chair, laughing at the Debbie Downer comment.

    No, I'm really glad you are into it, but it was rather nondescript here. I'm more bummed about the lack of skip. The partial eclipse we had about 10 years ago flooded the AM dial. I was in my car out near the edge of town in a parking lot and not even paying attention to the eclipse then, caught off guard.

    Yep, I think 90 miles or so South of the 100% zone.
    I used my auto dark welding helmet.

    It was the first time I've seen so many women get excited over something that only lasted two minutes!
