    Is anybody doing anything exciting for the eclipse? I know there will be a lot of activities and viewing parties but I haven't checked many of them out.

    Everyone in western NC bought up all of the glasses from all of the stores ($2/pair or less in most cases). So, instead of stores selling up til tomorrow, they've been sold out for over 2 weeks. People with 1000's and 1000's of pairs of the $2 glasses for sale for $10-100 a pair on those Facebook yard sales here. I've got to be outside during the eclipse, so I need a pair ... but not giving them that. lol

    Dropping my wife off to work at 3pm, and it will be overhead 2:30-3est here in NC. So, I'm just getting a couple Shade #13 welding helmet from the local tool store here for $45 each, then returning them on Tuesday. So, me and my wife will be standing in a parking lot wearing giant metal helmets and looking like a bunch of weirdos for about half an hour. hahaha

    I will wake up at 1 and be in the backyard with the dogs for it.


    once every 500 years, IIRC, for any particular spot so I will just watch from my particular spot
