I Saw a Total Solar Eclipse Today!

Our family!
As I live right outside of Saint Louis and it was on the edge of the path of, "Totality," I had the immense pleasure of witnessing a total solar eclipse today! For early two minutes the sky got significantly darker, the temperature dropped, and it was a very strange and fascinating experience. I feel very lucky I got to witness my first-ever solar eclipse and hope everyone else who saw it partially or totally had a great time too--and was safe (I don't want to see a ton of news reports about people suffering eye-damage from staring at the sun, but know there will sadly be plenty)! It is funny to think I had to wait until I was 29 to see a solar eclipse in-person but my son, Clarkson, got to witness it before he even turns a year old! Then again he probably won't remember it too well, so I'm cool with being older.
