    At work we were at 99.29% at best. I also noticed a large thunderstorm building south in Kentucky.

    I thought it was a pretty awesome event, wild how dark and eerie it got. Cicadas and tree frogs were making a lot of noise.

    I used my auto darkening helmet. Big mistake, I'll probably go blind now.

    It was really just another ho-hum day in paradise here in PA. It was kind of a let down to be honest, i mean i know where is was wasnt close to the hot zone, but didnt live up to the hype imho. 1 photo for you.

    My niece saw it this way: "It was incredible, the difference between 99 and 100% is not equal to 1%. It is off the scale."
