Has anyone else been having one of those weeks? I swear I have not been on time once all week. Nor have I left the office at a decent hour, except on Thursday when I left at 6:40 to go to the Farmer's Market for knitting. And this week was Jeopardy's Power Players Week. I've missed all the good match-ups. If I leave right now, I might get home in time to see Anderson Cooper play. Maybe he'll have a giggle fit again.
Yesterday, as I was driving up my street, I accidentally bumped side mirrors with a parked car. I stopped and did the right thing--left a note. But, sheesh, what a great way to start the day.
Anyway, I'm really just stopping in here to remind everyone in the California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and southern Utah areas to look for the Annular Eclipse on Sunday. It's known as a "ring of fire" because of the appearance.
Los Angeles will not get the full effect as in the photo, but we should see the sun covered about 85%. Other parts of the United States will see a partial eclipse of much smaller proportions. The maximum eclipse will occur around 6:38pm, but it starts at 5:24 and ends around 7:40. Here's a great LA Times article telling you the best ways to view the eclipse.
Why is this so exciting? Well, we don't get to see many eclipses here in So Cal, particularly one with this much coverage. Head to a higher elevation for the best view and have a great weekend.
