Mom set off with the kids and my stepbrothers and their mom super early to beat the traffic.
Ike taking a rest with about four hours to go.
Tony, Ben, Josh, and I all trailed along a couple hours later. The traffic wasn't bad for the most part so we got there pretty early still.
Under our tent. That thing sure came in handy! It was sweltering.
The boys all ready with their glasses.
Ike and Tim. We had a lot of down time leading up to the main event!
Gamma and the boys.
Selfie with Dave about an hour before totality.
It got pretty dark! That's the sun at totality. You can see a tiny pinprick in this picture...looked much different in person!
You can kinda tell what the sky looked like in this. It was a 360 sunset...gorgeous!
Dark enough that Joshs' flash came on!
And then there was the traffic...
Took us about 5 hours to make a drive that should've taken 1.5 hours. Pretty much a parking lot until we got 45 minutes from Hopkinsville. Worth it, but I am going to plan better for the eclipse in 2024!!
