    Hope you bought eclipse glasses for your phone camera. Supposedly it can fry the sensor inside it.

    I bought 10 pairs of glasses on Amazon for around $8 and they came with a cell phone camera cover thingy.

    It got a little dark and cooler here. We were only at about 85% to 90% it looked like. There is a housing project near the baseball field and all their photocell lights were on.
    ————————————————
    When I was a kid in grade school I remember seeing a partial eclipse and being warned about not looking at it without something that would shade your eyes but being told that sun glasses weren’t good enough. So, our science teacher showed us how to hold a piece of glass over a smoking candle until the glass was almost black. The trick was finding a piece of glass. Fortunately my Dad found a piece in the basement from a window that I broke with a baseball a few years earlier.

    Almost nothing at all in the Burgh area. If all the hype didn’t say we would experience some eclipse effect, I would never have thought it wasn’t just another cloud passing by.

    BTW, how cool was it? While watching TV they said some areas experienced a temperature drop of around 20 degrees F over a relatively short period of time.

    jmonroe

    20 degrees? Pshaw. We’ve had several occasions here in CO where the ambient temp has fallen 30 or 40 degrees inside of an hour.

    It’s almost like you can see the little blue line on the weather map moving in your direction.

    We were one of the 100% areas.
    Got dark quickly and streetlights came on.
    Temp definitely dropped, noticeable because I was wearing a tshirt.
    I tried taking progressive pictures but they didn't work out.
    People having party's were cheering and sending up fireworks.

    We were supposedly in an 80%-85% zone so it didn’t get dark here. It did get strange-looking outside, not exactly like sunset but with noticeably diminished light. Lucy the cat began behaving strangely inside, and birds outdoors were flying around and some were squawking loudly while it went on.

    I just wore my regular sunglasses during the full eclipse.
    There was an orange kind of small sphere or dot poking out the lower left.
    Some said it was a solar flare and some said called it 'The Engagement Ring'.
    We went down to the playground with the grandkids and someone had a Sun playlist for musical accompaniment.

    We also saw the orange light. I think it may be what they call Bailey Beads which is sunlight coming through valleys on the moon just before and/or just after full eclipse.

    We all noticed a drop on temperature maybe 15 to 20 minutes into the eclipse. It wasn't much just barely noticeable.

    This is weird but cool

    Traffic going was non-existent (we left early, and didn't need to)

    Going home was mostly okay... about 30 minutes extra, then hit a 4 mile stretch that took an hour.

    90 minutes up, 3.5 hours home

    With about 98% coverage, I was thinking... this really isn't going to get very dark. But, when it clicked over to full eclipse, it was like the lights going off. Not night-time dark, but very dark.

    In Albany we got about 96% at the airport but just as the eclipse started heavy clouds rolled in and spoiled it somewhat. I’m glad we didn’t get sent north today. One crew went as far as Glens Falls and said the traffic on I-87 was a nightmare.

    We're about 40 miles from Niagara Falls which was right on the path, it looked like the middle of the night.
    Traffic was overwhelming, almost 1 million people were heading to the Niagara area......hotel rooms were going for $500 to $1000 a night.

    Didn't really take note as I was workin' for a livin'. What I did note was that several of the management team were out in the afternoon, hmmm...

    Went to a local casual restaurant for $6.99 burger night (had the Vermont Cheddar burger. Yum) and parked at the near Hilton Garden Inn. Four charging stations, I've had mixed luck with them. Plugged in, nothing. Waved my Chargepoint card and voila, the (L2) flood gates opened! But, on the CP app, noted not part of their network. And, my credit card has yet to show a charge, so another free tank of electricity for me! Gotta next find those free gas stations.

    We were about 25 miles from centerline. Got dark llike late dusk. Wife was watching
    through glasses from our patio. I was trimming down ornamental grasses as it hit
    total. Strange. But not exciting enough to drive a few miles to the centerline for me from
    where we are.

    Dropped the ATS off at the dealer for service this AM and got a cab home. The cabbie had the radio on and I heard the two morning drive hosts talking about the eclipse. They said they were hearing from listeners who said they felt dizzy or headaches during the event (remember, it only got a little bit dim here , not dark) and that a number of listeners had reported in that they felt ill today, so were taking sick days. Jeebus.

    One rumor going around was that looking at the eclipse would make you go insane. Another said that during the eclipse the CERN supercollider in Switzerland would be turned on to create a portal to somewhere…..hell? …..another universe?…….Chick-fil-A? Who knows?

    We heard for days about traffic problems expected due to eclipse watchers returning to _somewhere_.

    But we decided to make a run down toward Cincinnati to a Lowes to get more of a plant that only
    that store seems to get--we had been there Sunday. Checked google traffic. Not bad in the Dayton urban decay area. Left home. 4 car pileup from those drivers who don't believe in slowing down to construction area speeds when lanes are narrowed and moved to side of interstate. Bypassed that using trademarked paths braving the city streets.

    Then south-of-town at a shopping/entertainment/business center another interstate feeds on and some southbound traffic feeds on. 20 minutes delay. All those folks who drove up to west central Ohio to see a longer total eclipse finally met in a 4:30 pm crunch.

    Saw lots of out-of-state license plates.

    Saw a Manitoba plate on car today heading west on I70. I don't even know where that is in Canada, but I doubt they were here for the eclipse. LOL

    my only traffic issue going home was two small areas of construction. The first one was just some work along the side which slowed traffic but the other one was a nightmare. They are working on the interchange of I 57 and I 74 and the normal ramps were closed so you had to get of one interstate to take some back roads to get pn the other interstate. Wouldn't you know that getting off I 57 there was a shortish ramp that ended at a stoplight which backed up traffic trying to change interstates for miles. Once I got past that I 57 was very clear.

    I’m very proud of my son. He calmly called me on his way home from school to tell me that he thinks he has a flat tire. He said the dash showed his right rear tire was at 18 psi & dropping. I’m off today, so was able to spring into action and meet him at the rest area where he pulled into. I got there and told him to open up the owners manual to see where the jacking points were and where the tools were. He started following the instructions and did everything himself. I just showed up for moral support.

    That’s awesome! Sometimes you have to get your hands dirty.

    Hoping the tire can be plugged!!

    ....or know how to call AAA.

    I want to say how proud you should be of him and of the job you've done parenting. Great work.

    I’m very proud of my son. He calmly called me on his way home from school to tell me that he thinks he has a flat tire. He said the dash showed his right rear tire was at 18 psi & dropping. I’m off today, so was able to spring into action and meet him at the rest area where he pulled into. I got there and told him to open up the owners manual to see where the jacking points were and where the tools were. He started following the instructions and did everything himself. I just showed up for moral support.



    Good for you! Teaching your son that he doesn't have to live in fear of not having a functional cell phone. My son always helped me switch my car's tires over from summer to winter and vice versa.
