I know, I know. Totally cheesy HA! So, after all of the anticipation of this Eclipse the question the day after is . . .Did you view it?
Yes, I bought glasses for our family. The kids were with my mom at her house, Darryl was in the dentist chair and I was at home. I decided to try and get a few photos using my special glasses over the lens of my camera.
My mom took the boys to a local park so they could see it too. They noticed that it got darker while they were there. I found that even more intriguing then the actual Eclipse - the darkening of the day and how eerie it looked because it wasn't a true "dark" but almost like severe weather was coming (think about that eerie look before a tornado).
On a side note, I bought our (well-researched, conforming) glasses on Amazon (from a reputable dealer) for $10.00 for 5 pairs. I saw someone selling similar glasses on a local garage sale page for . . .$10.00 a pair!!! Someone bought all 5 pairs for $50.00!!! Shoot, I should of sold ours and made cereal box watch boxes instead HA!
