well, at least my solar eclipse sob story has a cute ending. she totally thought this was put there just for her. a special kitty cradle of sorts.
i can finally say more about my eclipse experience (or lack thereof), sniff sniff. 😥 basically, here in our area of northeast florida, we experienced a total eclipse of the sky! ☁️ of all days for pouring rain, thunder & lightning storms, & cloud cover. especially considering the excitement & all we went through to get eclipse glasses. we were so ready. beyond excited. i was actually quite emotional over the magical rarity of such an event. then here came sky whiteout, grey clouds & storms. they stayed, & worsened. near our best "totality" time, i desperately got in the car & drove south, trying to get below the storm, & found myself driving into worse, caught in an absolute deluge, & hydroplaning along flooded road sections when turning around. it was scary & stressful, & people ... i cried all the way home. 😭 it had just meant so very much to see this rare, amazing event, & ... i missed it. hubby experienced the same where he was working. everyone was so bummed. but what are ya gonna do? it's nature. but here's what's cool: i watched the live eclipse coverage in oregon, & sat there & really experienced it with those people as much as i could ~ there i was, all by myself, a big ol' nerdy marshmallow, cheering, arm raising & joy-crying during totality!
🌒✨🙌🏻✨😭 i wasn't there, but i felt the excited energy, & saw the magic, & felt so connected to everyone. and later, when it was our turn, a tiny patch of sky did open for a bit at the start, & i was able to see the moon begin covering the sun. so, i got a small, brief eclipse sighting, & am grateful to have seen at least something of the wonder. so, it was a cloudy, rained-out wash of an eclipse for us. but then ... the cat was in the umbrella. and it cheered me up. and all that most mattered was a-okay. thank goodness for the little things.
