Although we toyed with the idea of heading south to get a better view of the eclipse, with all the terrible traffic projections for the day we figured we'd be better to just stick close to home and be content with seeing the 90% coverage. Unfortunately, by the time I got around to looking for eclipse glasses, they were WAY over-priced or not available at all, so we created our own eclipse projectors from cereal boxes (which totally did work!) ... then our neighbors had pity on us and gave us a pair of their glasses too!!
A special treat -- Jason had arranged his day so that he could swing by and watch with us which was really great!!
