Good luck you jammy sods. 😃

If it is any consolation Shane, the forecast is rather iffy here 🙄  We've decided to stick with our intended site though and hope for the best... heading  out at 1am 😱 (things are busy here!)

It will be an experience whatever!!! ☺️

Helen, etal -

If anyone reading this should find this news-article, or similar version, don't jump out of your shoes:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/oregon-wildfire-blazing-eclipse-apos-203432266.html

It's NOT in the pathway. And the wind-direction is not going to have it cork-screw down the pathway of totality. You'll all be just fine. American-news has become notorious for publishing garbage to cause people to flip-out and suffer coronaries! Especially Yahoo and it's myriad minions. All will be well.

Best Wishes -

Dave

In Charlestown with the family, heading to the MUSC soccer stadium for the solar eclipse party.  I've abandoned the idea of photos and just going to enjoy the day!

Yes, good luck to all those who've made it to the line of totality. I'm sure the excitement is building already.

I'm a bit upset that the weather seems to be confounding my chances of seeing the very shallow partial eclipse at local sunset. :(

What a great day. The weather just held. We had lightning during totality then clouded out just before third contact! But it was clear enough for the all important bit!
