Good morning. Won't be much to see here - cloudy and by this afternoon lots of rain.

Had the boys help me make pin hole viewers anyway just as a project to do.

Stay safe, guys.
Heard that Tennessee was supposed to have a great view of it. And Nashville was the largest city in the country to be able to see close to the full eclipse. In NE Wisconsin we were supposed to see about 80%. Had the kids at the local minor league baseball game during the peak of the eclipse. Definitely noticeable when the eclipse was going on. A weird kind of dim sunlight. Almost like you were wearing sunglasses, but weren't.

The whole thing reminded me of the Will Ferrell skit from SNL when he played Harry Caray. "One time I took a pair of binoculars and stared at the sun for over an hour." "It's not good to stair directly at the sun Harry." "But it's hard not too!"

We got to see the start of it but it clouded over and started raining through the peak time. Meh, it was all over the tv and facebook.

Good morning. A bit of excitement, checked my email when I woke, found an overdraft notice. Um NO.
Someone in NJ went on a spree at Home Depot with our card. Half hour on the phone got it back, but man! Jerks!
