I'm sleepy from eating to much BBQ and a little too much suds. Other than that relatively unscathed. Oh I did have a pretty good sneezing attach.

Meh, I took a couple of pot shots just in case someone thought about looting.
Always keep them thinking, always.

I went outside.
It kind of got dim, like a passing cloud. 
Then, it got brighter.
Glad I didn't buy eclipse glasses. I was in VA so not even close to the 99 to 94% optimal path zone.

Completely overcast in central Iowa.  Didn't see a thing.  They even cancelled the human sacrifice.

I took my plate carrier off when nothing happened. The nice lady at the church told me it was going to be "our judgement".  I did get judged by some folks who thought I shouldn't be wearing black socks, crocs, plate carrier, and a slung AR. It was hot so I didn't bother with any other clothes. I am disappoint.

I survived about 8 neighbor kids coming by and looking at my tripod, binocular, white piece of paper set up.  

They did not get to use the welding glass

The entire building...that didn't stay home...were outside screaming...pondered if it was the end of Raiders of the Last ark.

I peeked early on for all of 3 seconds and went back inside lol.

Saw at least one person looking up directly with just sunglasses on
