We're not going anywhere either. They're saying about 90% where we are, so we'll see what we can see. Wife bought glasses for all the employees.

The difference between 90% and Totality is like the difference between looking at a picture of a hamburger versus eating a charcoal broiled steak.

At Mt. Pleasant, KLRO. Anyone else going. It's going to be a zoo. The ramp is almost full already.

The entire area within the path is going to be a zoo.
Cell towers are going to be overloaded, so smartphone maps and calls likely won't work, or will be spotty.
Look for toilet paper to be gone (carry your own)
Fast food unavailable (outlets swamped)
Carry bottled water.
Interstate speeds may be averaging 5 or 10 mph. Carry a couple of gallons of water for radiators.

Just packed my toilet paper. Best advice ever. Zeroing in on east or central Tennessee. Good luck all.
