    Unfortunately, I am probably going to miss it (cloudy in south central MO tonight) still, at 2am, I will wake up (as per usual)(insomnia) and look to see if the skies have cleared at all…..

    The weather channel claimed it was going to be completely overcast, so I didn’t bother. But since, like tom p, I woke up at 4am due to insomnia, I noticed there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and I got to see the very end of the eclipse. Thanks again, weather “forecasters”.
