Eclipse 2024, What’s your thoughts?

I have thought long and hard about the up coming eclipse. Just the other day Beth said to me, ” Could you image living back a hundred years or so ago and not knowing anything about an eclipse or what one even was?”.  I told her that I had that same thought and we both imagined that you would think the world was coming to an end. I mean think about it, You are out plowing your field thinking this is just an ordinary day like always, and at 1:30 in the afternoon the sky starts to dim. At first you might think a storm is moving in and you need to take cover, but as it grow more and more dark things feel very ominous. You may have a vast array of feeling like fear, confusion, sadness and many others but as the sun starts to come back in to view you have a feeling of shear thankfulness that it wasn’t the end. You may look at things all together different and start counting your blessings one by one.

Anyway, I plan on getting some pictures for everyone and posting them on here so everyone can see them as we are in the area of totality as they are calling it. I mean they have huge plans for the days surrounding this event. In a town of 12 thousand people they said the influx of people could be upwards of 100 thousand or more. Motel rooms are and have been reserved for a long time already. The town has Art exhibits, parades, along with several activities planned. Several businesses have called off work for the entire day, schools are out. The town is warning everyone to stock up on food, have all your prescriptions filled, and gas tanks filled. They recommend no travel unless absolutely necessary due to the influx of people they are expecting. 

Will it all unfold like they think it will? I guess we will just have to wait and see. I thought what will happen if it is cloudy that day, or it rains with everything planned and all the money they have put into this. 

I think it will be interesting to watch it all unfold. I do think they have mostly clear skies in the forecast now for the event. 

I plan on getting pictures if all works out and I will post them on here. 

More to come soon!

Eclipse 2024 Experience Totality!

Just a couple of the pictures I was able to get of the total eclipse!

This was the first time I had ever experienced a total solar eclipse and I must say it was worth it. It is a very strange feeling you must experience if you ever can. The chicken went in their Coop right as totality was starting to happen, the birds got quiet and the temperature really cooled off. It makes you really appreciate the Sun and God’s creation. The energy we get from the Sun, the plants and the animals all react to it. It was a very cool rare opportunity to get to experience it and I am thankful I was able to. I may be too old to see the next one. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment that I was able to get.
