I'm going to treat it like the zombie apocalypse.

Which means I'm going to walk around in a vest, unshaven with a crossbow.

Perhaps there might be a Yuuuuuugge earthquake from gravitational activities. 😁

As an amateur internet scientist specializing in gravity, I can honestly tell you that moon shadows make my thighs look big.

So yes, gravity will be effected. But like Sandra Bullock, we will overcome gravity.

And the earth will win an Oscar.

Amen.

Any solar storm that requires people to seek shelter is going to be an ELE event.

God only knows what would be left of our electrical grid, info structure, arable farmland or upper ionosphere for that matter after such a storm?

Not much would be my guess hence my ambivalence to believe it's going to happen anytime soon.


One day through the Sun will indeed burp and fry our arse, such is the law of statistical probability.

Hahahaaa..
Hope it doesn't disrupt your diet.
For what ever reason, hope you can get great pictures and safely.
I'm only getting 80.2% coverage of the eclipse.

I have 8 rifles.
3 pistolas
1 wicked a$$ Crossbow.

If anything goes down.. step one:

: RAID THE TACO BELL
: unplug all electronics and place them in the Lead Lockers and boxes
: evacuate my Hmmm mm
: close the blinds
: hide out in me basement.

It's a Happening. I don't think people in general are afraid of it, they just want to view it and be part of the event for fun.

I was dead center of the eclipse path in 10/18/1978 and I remember everyone being into it in the area and I went to a big party with friends the night before and we stayed up all night and waited for it. There were people gathered all over the area to view it.


Exactly!

My folks are coming up to stay with us to view it at our place. Not everyone who wants to see it has a private residence to crash at and view it from. Most are going to be relying on the local hospitality infrastructure.

This is really a once-in-a-lifetime thing for a lot of folks, and not many want to miss it if they can help it.

Yes, I've viewed and read a few of those apocalypse theories too.

My favorite is the one about how the path of totality goes across Cascadia, Yellowstone, and the New Madrid all in a few hours.

I'll let you speculate on what I think of it and why it's my favorite though.

a reply to: ketsukoHey Ket. I'm south of you down in Roseburg and have been seeing the local Eugene news and all the promotions that have been going on now for months, about how Oregon will be the place to be to see this event best. I think the businesses of Corvallis and surrounding localities have been promoting just how ready they all are to make the whole area comfortably accessible to tourists from a 1000 mile radius and now have created a monster.
Me, I"m staying home. Besides, if this heat wave continues into the next couple of weeks, (we are looking at 115 tomorrow) it will be a nightmare up your way. Peace.

Good luck to all in the path of the tourist monster... growing up in Florida I hated seeing out of town folks, they are usually good for spending money and causing problems that usually ended up costing the town more than they made.

I actually considered this.
I wondered about all the Fracking sites if ya know what I mean. Oklahoma, Nothern Texas and of course The New Madrid. 😐

Here's the path😊

Oh, I'm not in Oregon. I'm out in Missouri, Kansas City, and it's almost eerie how little they've been promoting the eclipse here. There aren't even displays of eclipse glasses in local stores or anything!

The best viewing will be about 40 minutes north of me, but we'll still get about 1min and 40secs of totality where we live. That's maybe a minute shy of the best, but I figure that's still pretty good. That will allow the strangeness to sink in.

I think we'll get out and shop early though. Last time "disaster" mode struck the people around here was during an expected major ice storm event. We always have a decent stock laid back, but our primary shopping day was supposed right when the storm was at its peak, so we shopped early ... along with everyone else.

It was like you see in hurricane shopping!

Every cart was gone - inside and out. There were checkout lines stretching down aisles with people and loaded carts. The produce was stripped and the shelves couldn't be stocked fast enough ...

Oh, no. We're shopping early on this.

Well, I for one am gonna wait for the totality and then repeatedly flush my toilet.

Oh wait...is that a different holiday?

Anyone need a generator?? Like new...only 17 years old. Super low hours!

This is nuts!

When millions of people descend upon New Orleans every year, we don't shelter in place... we party.

I just wonder if all those people standing in one place is going to leave a divot or something.

Maybe make the Earth wobble on its axis like an outta balance tire or something.

It's over, I tell ya...over!

We're doomed!!!

P.S. Look! Over there...a shiny thing...on the ground......

Forever the optometrist. You see things in the
shadows most astronomers can't pick out in
broad daylight-- maybe without even carrots
involved.
I simply live for this... tells you about the live
music quality in S.Illinois since the 70's.

Sweet deal, I will be in Oregon during this event.

Here's the path from NASA



Lots of places to view from. Some areas just may be more popular than others.

Don't forget your special viewing apparatus!
