  • Eclipse

    Glendo was at the junction of I-25 and totality. Wyoming had a million visitors. Glendo (pop 205 or so) estimated 100,000. We are south of town so our visitors did not make it to town and get in this count. it was a clear day and the eclipse was perfect and one of our guests was a semi pro astronomer with a telescope and all the filters so we learned a lot and saw more than the average person might, but if I live to be 120 what i will always remember is the Huge crowds and the traffic. Cars parked every where in the barrow pits on the interstate which they closed for a while. Many who were evidently illiterate as they could not read no parking or no trespassing signs/ We could see the secondary hiway and immediately after totality it it was bumper to bumper 15 mph and that lasted for 6 hours at least. Here i am happy the sun returned and happy these people are all heading south. All is back to normal.

    Hi Herb
    I guess it was a real nice feeling to see all your visitors on the road to somewhere that the sun was shining after being in the darkness for a short time, personally I didn't notice any thing different yesterday as we where too far north for much of an effect, I guess we will have to wait for the next one

      Hey Herb nice carving you have there in your hand . As for the Eclipse, I'm with Bruce on that one. It got a bit dusky up here in southern Nova Scotia but I've seen it darker when the fog rolls in than it was during the Eclipse. We are supposed to have a total eclipse in 2024 so we'll have the crowds then.
      If you're looking for me, you'll find me in a pile of wood chips somewhere...

          Can't tell Herb if you are showing off your tee shirt or your carving. Congrats on the award.

          If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.
