August 2017 is here!

This has been a LONG anticipated month. I am an eclipse chaser and an American. After way too long an eclipse is coming near! The last time one hit America was 1991 in Hawaii. I went to Baja Mexico instead. It was more affordable and the weather prospects better. Prior to that was 1979 and I skipped that one due to expense and terrible timing with school. This is the first one since I started eclipse chasing in 1972. And it is coming to the Midwest.

Are you ready for the Eclipse August 21st.

Now is the time to start paying attention to the long term weather. Are there major storms coming across the Atlantic that could develop into tropical hurricanes and disrupt the weather in the Midwest? What about the Pacific Ocean, anything odd there that may push rainy weather south from the Rockies across the plains? The good news is there isn't anything showing up so far. Let us hope and pray that the weather is good on eclipse day for the entire nation!
