Fog, Crime Dramas, and a Solar Eclipse 

I spent most of yesterday doing pretty mundane things, getting blood drawn early in the morning for routine lab work, and spending the rest of the day waiting for repairmen to finally finish fixing my broken washing machine.

The silver lining to the day was being up early enough to see the sun burn off the fog that had rolled in overnight. The pictures are a little grainy, since I took them at red lights while in my car. 

I then spent the next six hours waiting for the repairmen binging most of the first season of Broadchurch. If you like gritty crime dramas and haven’t given this show a look yet, definitely do. It follows the effects of one murder on a small town as the police slowly unravel who committed the crime, and is flawlessly executed.

August 21st- Full Solar Eclipse

The path of totality for the Aug. 21, 2017 total solar eclipse is about 70 miles wide and follows a path free m from Oregon to South Carolina. It crosses over Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. At most, the moon will completely cover the disk of the sun for 2 minutes and 40 seconds. 

If you are in the path of the eclipse, make sure you have either solar glasses or a pinhole camera to view it. Also keep in mind that traffic will be heavy in many areas, and much of the path lies in areas that become brutally hot in August. Bring some water!
