Today there is a total solar eclipse across North America. I traveled to be with family in the path of totality, and... It's cloudy. This is too bad, since I was hoping to see some of the eclipse itself (through glasses), and yesterday was actually pretty clear. People have come a long way to this area as well. Different parts of the path are clear, but this is just what we risk in April in this area.

On the other hand, it should still be interesting in an hour when we actually get totality, since of course even with the clouds there's still some sunlight. It might actually be kind of interesting.

This is sort of a once-in-a-lifetime thing, not necessarily the eclipse itself but just coming through this area. I'm not the biggest space nerd, but it's a neat natural phenomenon that you may as well try to witness.
