Yes, very awesome. It rained here until about 30 minutes before, then it was clear the whole time, then it rained again. It was clear during the eclipse though, and I had my eclipse glasses ready. When the moon was fully in front of the sun, I couldn’t see it at all through my glasses, it took a minute to realize to take them off and look around!

It was really something to see. I live just north of Kansas City, in the path of the totality. It it seemed to go very fast though, was it like that for everyone else?

 But I always think it is a funny things as other funny things, like I found the robot could move itself when I was a little child.

I ever saw. But now I have forgotten what’s view that time. it was about at my primary school.

   No. I don’t think a solar eclipse is romantic. But if the two lovers see it together, it will be romantic really.

   I would thought I had lost the feeling of romantic since I became a mother.
