What are you guys doing for the event??? Anything? Nothing?

We're getting 90% totality where I'm; I'm honestly thinking about taking the backroads to the Nebraska panhandle to view it. Seems like a once in a lifetime opportunity and I'm close enough for it to be a half day trip. BUT........I don't want to get into a mass chaos traffic jam with a bunch of morons.

I'm loving all the conspiracy stuff surrounding the event. The numerology of dates and all that stuff. Entertaining if anything. I hope the 2nd coming is not upon us. LOL

80% in Cleveland where I'll be. Staying away from crazies. Have a friend that is going to check it out the totality in Wyoming...hotels that normally go for $69 are over $400!

It's supposed to be about 60% in Ontario, so I will step out from my work to the parking lot to look at it, provided it's not cloudy.

I have a pinhole projector that I will take a gander. Other than that what is there to do about it? I have seen them before and it is quite interesting to experience. Birds stop chirping, feels like dusk in the middle of the day, then return to normal.

I don't follow conspiracies around astronomy. I on the other hand hope that the 2nd is upon us. This world is s toilet and needs a flushing.

My in-laws are going to Tennessee to see it, but my FIL is a pretty hardcore amateur astronomer. He went to Siberia in 1997 to see one but was a bit disappointed because it early spring and the sun was fairly low in the sky.
I'm tempted to drive to Tennessee or Kentucky myself as this one should be good!

The solar eclipse event of 2017 has been canceled by Jeff Bezos. Sorry folks.

Staying in Gatlinburg, which I think is in the 99.9% coverage range. Depending on traffic we plan to try to watch from Cades Cove, or if we cant get close enough we'll park somewhere up in the hills a little south where its 100%. It just happens to be my big 5-0 that day so I consider this a divine birthday present from the solar system.

Keeping my fingers crossed for a clear sky so we can at least see some of it!

CBC has an interactive map that had Toronto at about 72% at 1418h. Windsor's coverage is a bit better for obvious reasons. My family and I'll likely just view from home or nearby park.

I am in no way familiar with the bible; but I run a farmers market here in Windsor and one of our vendors is a preacher who spoke to me at length about how this eclipse and some other celestial event slated for Sept. 23 is rife with prophecy.

Those talking about the second coming, whose second coming are you referring to? Because the one I'm thinking of, there is no mention of an eclipse in the scripture.

100% where I live for about two minutes. I'll be working.
While the entire event lasts more than two minutes, I have a feeling a lot of people will have remorse after paying huge amounts of money for motel bills and then have it over after such a short time.
