Why now? Well, why not?
The hype around the eclipse seen in North America Monday, August 21, seemed unreal. My local go-to for weather tweeted about it constantly. The entire Eastern U.S. seemed to have driven south for it, based on our experience on I-81 headed back north that night. I learned that the Waze app allows comments; reading them at 1:30 a.m. was its own special experience.
And then it was Tuesday.
