Did anyone else see it???  I watched the weather channel and most of the sites where people were
gathered seemed disappointed.  

Of course, if people watched sunrises and sunsets they would know we get them every day.   Giggle

I was not in the path of Totality, but I did go out (with about 50 others from my office) to see it....and it was something.   People were kind and shared their glasses so I got to see the sun about 85% or more blocked out. the folks where I was were pretty impressed... I heard "awesome" and So cool" a lot.   As a vertically challenged person I think it is cool the little Moon gets to have a day where it is the Big Man in the Sky in front of the Sun. One thing for sure,  next time, I will try to get my glasses a good month or more before the event!
