After looking on the internet and calling around, I finally found glasses for viewing the eclipse at Lowe's for $1.98. So, that's done. I feared I would not find any locally and be forced to order from the internet and then not be sure they would arrive in time.
These are made in the USA, not China, thankfully. The glasses meet ISO standards. Well, it says so on the glasses.
I held them up to look through them and could not see anything, not even light. I've yet to hold them to the sun....maybe later today.
This is the most important thing I had to think and worry about. Now, I am keeping my fingers crossed there will be no clouds. Plus, I am nervous about the crowds, actually the drunks and crazies that might be out that day.
Are you going to see the total eclipse anywhere? Got your glasses? Got a plan?
