'Eclipse' your day...

Well... that *didn't* quite work the way I had hoped...

Nevertheless...

I got up at 7 am, just like I'd said I would. Took a look outside: everything dark, sky indeterminable. Did all the usual: shower, getting dressed, tea etc. Around 8 am: sky still overcast. So I called my friend, who lives closer to the mountains. They often have different weather than we do. Yupp, sky is supposedly clearing...

Ok. I gather all my stuff, jump into the car, drive in the direction of the mountains. Sky still overcast. Then a faint ray of light to my right. I find a parking spot and set up the camera.

This is what I got:



Doesn't look very promising, does it? And you're right. It didn't get any better. I kept driving, hoping for some spot where the heavy fog would clear (it's a high fog - I don't know the proper name for it, but it's not on the ground but rather at about cloud height. Just a cover of dense fog. The ground is clear, you can see fine and far, but the sky is overcast.). No luck. I drive and drive and for just *ONE SHORT SECOND* I see the eclipse, the main part, peeking through the fog! And I couldn't stop, because I was on the highway. >.<

Finally, I decide it's time to go home, eclipse is almost over, weather isn't getting better, I need more tea, yadda, yadda, yadda...

I drive through the town adjacent to ours and LO AND BEHOLD! The sky clears for about 5 Minutes! 5!!!

I race into the nearest driveway, jump out of the car, set up the camera and... voila:







Much joy was had! ^_____^

Drove home, had more tea, sat down to write and now...? The sky is back to overcast and grey. ^___^ Ye Gods, was *I* lucky!
