The Austin eclipse wasn't as cool as the one I saw here in South Carolina a few years back, thanks to the weather, but it was still cool. And it had a soundtrack! Steve has a small lily pond, which has even smaller frogs (Southern Cricket Frogs, I believe), and as it started getting dark, the frogs started up their chorus. Then suddenly they stopped; it was like one of them checked his tiny little waterproof watch and said "Hey, guys? It's not really night!"

We had really cool people there, we hung out and ate snacks (note: having your only meal of the day be lots and lots of party munchies will do awful things to your innards, but everyone brought such good stuff!) and played games and had a great time.

I am so happy I work with such great people! I can't imagine anyone I would rather watch an eclipse with.

It's too late to take that comment down now!

Seriously, I'm glad you and others got to see it--and that I did too. (And I like the pic.) I was visiting some friends not too terribly far from "Illuminati Headquarters." So seeing the total eclipse took no more effort than putting on eclipse glasses and walking out the front door. There were a few clouds moving across the sky. But it anything, that made things more dramatic.

"It's about to hit totality and the clouds are moving and...there it is!"

The website for "12 Signs..." makes Malwarebytes very upset.
