The clouds rolled in just as the solar eclipse was starting, so the kids and I rolled east. We went all the way to 27th and Edgerton to a McDonalds where the clouds were just thin enough for the kids to see the eclipse with our eclipse glasses that my wife bought. My daughter Moira took a couple of photos using the glasses as a filter for her iPhone:
Across the street from where we were parked, there was an auto repair shop. The guys there were taking turns using the welding mask to look at the sun. At a table near us we saw a mom and her son using their eclipse glasses and sharing them with passersby.
This is really the first solar eclipse since I was a kid that I was able to actually see. I think I enjoyed it as much as the kids.
