I'll just wait to see. Very leery about the news media.

I'd like to take a few images from here in CA even though it partial and plan to set up a camera or two.

Hey be aware of those fake glasses they've flooded the market with.

I'll be at work on Monday and have proper glasses, but it looks like we'll have fog and cloud cover. The 2024 one is going to pass right over my Dad's back yard in Georgetown, TX. so I'll wait for that one.

Just returned from Sacramento to Elk Grove on I-5 south. Friday, 3:00 p.m. Traffic northbound into Sacramento on I-5 was heavy. Going through downtown was at a standstill.

^^^ all the roads look pretty clear right now. i like oregons cam page setup better than ours.

ill bet the worst of it is when everyone is headed home after the eclipse. haven't heard anything negative around here and all our roads look clear as usual after looking at our road cams.

Some gas stations in Bend have already run out of regular gas.

^ This is shaping up to be a complete cluster f**k up there. A buddy of mine who used to live in Powell, WY drove back to the area to see it. He's currently camped on BLM land somewhere in WY but I don't know where. He has the advantage of having lived there and having 4x4.
