It's eclipse day! Does your town have eclipse fever?

Which state or country do you live in?

Will you be able to see the eclipse today?  Will you be watching?

I think where I live, we're supposed to have like 74% coverage. We're not in the path of totality. I'll be at work when it happens, lol. I might step outside to see a little bit though.

About 75% but I won't be watching. We don't have glasses 😏 (Ohio)

I live in northern NJ so we will be able to see "partial totality".  I plan to watch it either with a homemade viewing box or online.  It should be pretty clear here around 2PM when it begins.  My son & his family live right in the area of full totality - just south of Charleston, SC.  However, although the county closed all the schools (school started last week) -my grandson is in 1st grade, my granddaughter in nursery school- and provided eclipse glasses for every school-aged child, both kids will be at the nursery school today because both my son & DIL must be at work, and the nursery school won't let the kids out to watch the eclipse.  I guess they don't want the responsibility if some kid disobeys the rules and doesn't wear the glasses.  :(

I live in Michigan. I am down at my parents house for other things. In the UP where I live it is going to be hard to see. Not sure what the percent is.

I have no idea. No one has really talked about it that I know of.
