I hope this thread pops up again close to the event so I don't miss it!
You're kidding right? This is the sort of thing local news weathermen geek out over. They'll remind us when the time comes.
Also, it is a Goose thread. It will never die.

Just in case, I set a calendar reminder.

Yes, I will try and remember to resurrect the thread when we get closer to August. In the mean time, I'm missing the Assassin's Kittens video. Won't someone please post in it, so that I don't have to?

But I do let some threads die. I haven't brought back the Sharrow Philtpads thread in a while.

Philtpads sounds too much like maxi-pads

Thought I'd bring this thread up again in case there were any that haven't yet finalized any Summer travel plans they may have.

If you have any chance of being near the red band showing total eclipse.

Even though we're in the red band (in Lee's Summit, MO - perhaps 20 miles south of the center of the path), we're thinking of going to Casper, WY to see it at my BIL's place. Of course I'd be able to get in a few days of trout fishing western Wyoming, which isn't a bad byproduct of visiting a member of Mrs FredS's family.

My home town is making a big deal out of being in the sweet spot of the eclipse.

Thank you for thinking of me! Enjoy your anniversary.

I'll ping you the next time we are in Missouri.

That guy pronounces Missouri funny. But given that I was wondering how Madison WI might see a total eclipse this too is progress.
Oh Hillary... You abandon us to this?
