It’s Best That It Didn’t Though

Our viewing experience for the eclipse was either less than ideal or . . . ideal, depending how you want to consider it.  Leading up to totality it was mostly cloudy, but we had breaks in the clouds enough to be able to track the progress of things.  As totality approached, however, the cloud cover also reached totality and we lost our view.

A new view was quickly provided though as the lightning began, so our totality experience was of the world darkening while heat lightning lit up the sky.  It was . . . impressive, and as there were young children with us, it was arguably the ideal eclipse “show” for us.

But between you and me, I still found myself hoping the storm would get even more intense for the full “double downing on the apocalypse” effect.
