    Well, where you usually saw round spots of sunshine, you saw crescent spots of sunshine.

    In prime view path.. But am less concerned with the visible astronomic display, and somewhat concerned with unseen seismic forces.

    That will be seen in a few hours.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    I go into work a little after the time of totality. It is hot and still out except for the cicadas. I will probably go outside to check periodically, but I can see the sun reflecting off the rear window of my car in the driveway. I don't even have to go out if I don't want to.

    We are now getting some sparse cloud cover. I can see the eclipse beginning.

    We are about 30% to totality.

    Eclipse will cost U.S. almost $700M in lost productivity

    American employers will see at least $694 million in missing output for the roughly 20 minutes that workers will head outside and gaze at the nearly two-and-a-half minute eclipse, Reuters reports.

    I will still go in and work my full shift. We are about 20 min from totality here.

    I went out for the totality. It wasn't pitch dark, but it was dark enough that street lights came on.

    Got a break in the cloud cover just long enough to see a crescent sun... and then realize that I grabbed the shade 10 helmet... then realize that the shade 13 helmet wouldn't auto-darken... and then cloud cover again.
    There are no crimes against people.
    There are only crimes against the state.
    And the state will never, ever choose to hold accountable its agents, because a thing can not commit a crime against itself.

    Never saw this post, but noticed this immediately -- the tiny holes between the leaves make a pinhole camera effect...

    Actually, my science nerd daughter took that, very proud of her.

    She got a bunch of nice shots through my welding hoods and sextant filters.

    I don't have the hi res copies yet, that one was grainy and pixelated because I enlarged it before posting from a message pic.
