    Lee, thanks for those great pics! It didn't even darken down here, too far south. House full of 20 yearolds out of control, jammin', slammin'

    Thanks for calling, sorry I couldn't talk much. While Shpongle got raves, guess what they really flipped out over?

I had to get the big fan out, the SAE's protection shut down several times, fan on all was fine, my buddy, oddly named Stu asked for some Pearl Jam, so Evenflow hit the 500w peak lights, all dancing around in and out of the soundstage the 'slabs set up so naturally ...

    We made one of those pinhole boxes to view the eclipse, and set the welder's glass into a cardboard frame to shadow the face. Our houseguest got an invite to an eclipse party from his bank in Kearney, Mo, so we made up a detailed route to the town using secondary roads, mostly two-lane blacktops. Traffic wasn't too bad, so we went north on MO-291 and then I-35 to Kearney, leaving (hope & faith) at 9:30 in driving rain. It was still raining at the party, but cleared about the time the eclipse started. Totality occurred during a lucky clear spot in the sky, with only a thin scrim of clouds, so we got a good look. I let lots of folks have a look thru the welder's glass, though we all had the special glasses. A Mitsubishi Eclipse drove by. After totality, clouds came back, rain came back and everybody left. We saw a lot of traffic coming south and west, so we just did the reverse of our B-plan route, driving in heavy rain thru the backroads of Clay, Ray and Lafayette counties. Whew! It was worth it.

    I have two Mitsubishi Starions. Way cooler car, but no connection to solar events I guess.


    Sounds like a great time. It was stinking hot down here near the Arkansas line.
    Is the terrain any flatter up your way? Do the two lanes have shoulders?

    What if you were driving an Eclipse to see the eclipse, and you wrecked it - you might have totalled your Eclipse on your way to see the total eclipse...
