Now that everyone is mentioning it, even though my birds don't park themselves on the window sill to look outside (aviary environment, not caged), I think I will tip the blinds and close the curtains in the family room.

 

 

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise

Do you all really think you will go blind if you glance up at the sun during the eclipse? Really? "Remember to bring your pets in". I really think this phenomenon is getting way blown out of proportion! Its an eclipse, not the end of the world.

While my husband and I are normally "out and about" around the time of the eclipse and eat lunch out somewhere, we're staying home during the eclipse time period. We'll have lunch at home that day.   I'll do my normal walking at 8:00 AM and then come home and hope to be home for the duration. 

 

We have the approved glasses but I highly doubt we'll venture outside. For some reason, I've become a little skittish about it. 

 

We will be watching on tv though. I'm looking forward to that. 


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

You go first and let us know how it works out.  I have always heard not to look up at it during this kind of an event.

I am not going to chance it would you

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

I will not go out during those hours. I don't have those approved glasses, not that I'd trust them anyway. We only have two eyes and they are precious!

 

What will you be doing?


you can hurt your eyes only by looking directly at the sun

Both....because I work from home.   It's going to be cloudy here, the visability won't be great but since I don't have any eclipse glasses, I'll be watching on tv.

        Why don't you go outside and stare up at the eclipse for as long as you can and report back to us...if we don't see a post from you, we'll assume you went blind.
