Hello everyone and welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop where we always take the opportunity to share what we are thankful for on a weekly basis. We always have so much to be thankful for, but today we’re thankful that the Great American Eclipse is over and that we all survived the craziness!
I was glued to the window all afternoon watching and waiting. Okay, I actually wasn’t glued to the window, that would surely have hurt a bit, but I was there watching. I was a little disappointed too. I was lead to believe that because of the eclipse we might actually catch a glimpse of Bigfoot or the locally famous LizardMan. Rumor had it that they would be rousted by the eclipse and venture out of the woods. They didn’t, or if they did they weren’t anywhere near our neck of the woods.
It actually did get pretty dark here and, just like predicted, the birds went to bed early and the outside insects were singing up a storm. Here’s a few clips from our Ring.com Stick Up Cam that we use to monitor the feral activity on our back deck.
This was taken about an hour before the eclipse started and you can see how bright and sunny it was out back.
This video is the moments of the total eclipse. It lasted about 2-1/2 minutes but I cut the video to about 50 seconds because just looking at dark was boring. Oh, it did get a wee bit dark…this was taken at 2:38 PM EST.
We are thankful we got to see the Great American Eclipse! So tell me, what are you thankful for today? Let me know in the comments and better yet hop on into our Blog Hop. See you soon.
