    One year from today, August 21, 2017, there will be a complete solar eclipse visible from various parts of the US. 500 Japanese, along with others, have already booked hotel rooms in town. I think we should have one big party here!

    What are your plans for 8/21/17?
    Are you looking up or down. I happen to have a cardiologist appointment at the same time as the eclipse so I hope that they take a break and at least let us go outside. Metro schools will be closed that day as there is expected to be major congestion from all the out-of-towners in the area, many of which came from other countries.

    I remember as a kid there was a solar eclipse and my mother had all the curtains pulled and if we were to look outside it's like we would be dead or something, like the Grim Reaper was out there...something I will never forgot

    Today is the day...it will be dark in the afternoon. We are supose to be 95* today but will cool off a bit during totality.
    Many may turn into zombies so beware.
