The total eclipse is creeping closer, and I am plotting my way to see it.
I’m at the edge of a day drive, getting to Carbondale or south of St Louis is about 4.5 hours for me. So my plan is, currently, take the day off and drive down in the morning. Eclipse start is like 4:30, totality around 6:30. So I am going to take the time to see weather reports for the sweep from St Louis to Land Between the Lakes and head down there. If clear in Carbondale that is my first choice.
This is the plan. It is almost here!
