Over the past few days, all talk everywhere has been about the total solar eclipse that would be visible in the United States! 

The search for safety glasses caused a bit of commotion as area stores sold out quickly days ahead of the event.  Many events were planned around it from a viewing party at Government Plaza to teachers taking their classes out and playing the event on television for all students to see it.

Personally, I can say that I'm slightly disappointed.  It didn't get as dark as I expected.  And it didn't give me the euphoric feeling of having witnessed a phenomenon. I don't think I had any other expectations.

What about you?  Was it all you expected?  Did you do anything extra for the occasion?
