I'm bummed aaaaaa

I have work from 11-1, which is when it's supposed to happen here omg. I can watch the live stream and maybe make it for the last little bit after the apex, but I really wish I could watch in person.

I'm hoping my mom will be home in 2 hours so I can watch it
She had to go take one of my brothers somewhere
There's a lot of trees in my yard so I was hoping she could take me to a more open area

I'm incredibly sad I won't be able to see it :c I've been wanting to see one since I was 12(?). I'm working until 4 and it'll be over use between 2-3. I might have been able to sneak out during my break and see part of it but I don't have eclipse glasses

Also a quick reminder to not look at the eclipse without proper eclipse glasses, it will harm your eyes. Also don't let you pets out or let them near a window bear that time. They can experience the same eye damage humans get

I can't wait. The skies are perfect. I'm just barely outside of totality (I wish I could head up to Chattanooga or Nashville to see totality, but eh). I'll be watching through a welding mask.

Are you sure its protection is strong enough, though?

Yep. Did my research. I'm not what you'd call an idiot. I do my research on everything, much less something that has a high chance of being harmful.

I know. Did I come off differently than I intended? Sorry Hieroglyph, I didn't mean anything by that.

It's already started for me, it's pretty cool. I'm also glad the sky cleared up a little because it was really foggy this morning and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to view it.

(Also it's alright Bluefox, no harm done ^^)

It's starting. Moon is an eighth at most at the moment over the sun.
