Stupid, Stupid, Pretty Sunset!

I’ve been watching all day.

It hasn’t looked that great.

It did give us a very pretty sunset, but that’s sorta counterproductive for tonight’s particular goal.

Now, at 23:05 local, with totality beginning at 04:11 local, a little over five hours from now, it’s… complicated.

On the one hand, it looks spectacular.

On the other hand, it’s about 80% cloud covered – and getting worse.

I’ve got the cameras all ready to go and the alarms set – we’ll see if I can drag my sorry butt out of bed in the middle of the night to at least check to see how cloudy it is.

Let the games begin.
