    Didn't seem all that great to me. Nothing's happened all day. :P A family friend got married under it in Montana, though, which is pretty awesome (assuming it was visible there).

    Just 30 minutes ago, the solar eclipse of 2017 was at its peak. Meanwhile, I was watching from our backyard, flashing my eclipse glasses of and on. It was an  AMAZING  experience! So much so I typed "amazing" with bold, italic, and underlined full caps. Just when it began, I could see that little hole in the sun as the moon's shadow drifted along. When it reached totality, we took turns rapidly putting on the glasses. It was incredible to see the shadows of the trees turning into the shape of a crescent. So, what did you think of the eclipse? Put your thoughts in the comments.  [s:p/zxl]
