There is a total solar eclipse in parts of the United States today.

In Grand Rapids, we get 80% of an eclipse, which is still something. I also had the special solar eclipse doughnut at Krispy Kreme, which was very impressive and lasted about the same length of time (two minutes).

In case you're outside the U.S. (because it's 100% news saturation here), this is the path:

Maximum eclipse time in Grand Rapids is about 2:20 EST, so I plan on walking on a track for thirty minutes before and after. A park would have been a better option, but Eli 16.0 is an instructor at goalie camp this week, so my mobility is limited.

I'll try to snapshot Google traffic after the eclipse ends, because getting out of the totality path should be absolute madness.
