Is anyone watching it?? I will be watching it steaming live.
But for some reason I am paranoid. I have told my kids several hundred thousand times to not look at the sun and promise me they won't. Hahahahah.
I am never paranoid about stuff.

Add on:
I loved how this country came together for a couple of hours to watch a cool thing. No fighting, no arguing, just something that brought us together. Even for a few moments.

If you are in NY, I guess you're pretty far from the ecipse but at least you get a partial.  We are close but not quite and definitely not traveling to get closer.  We have the glasses and I'm excited.  Will definitely be leaving the pets inside.

We will get about 71%. I have friends that went to KY and got the glasses and everything.
I am excited about this too. It will neat to experience and I read it will come back in 28 years.

Where I live IRL gets about 97% totality but we took a small road trip so we will get 100%. I'm nervous about my kids looking too, lol.

It'll be 90% here. I-57 south was clogged with people driving down to Carbondale (southern IL), where it will be 100%. I don't care that much. I'll prob check out internet or tv coverage.

I heard that Oregons mayor called for a state of Emergency because of the influx of people coming in.

wow, that's crazy. Someone on my FB was driving north on 57, and videotaped the traffic on the other side. It was absolutely crazy. Miles of cars sitting still...one lane closed for construction. I bet the truckers were pissed.
