Solar Eclipse And You

Are you renting out your ground for campers wanting to see the great solar eclipse?  Or are you going to pack up mama and the kids and go see it for yourself?


Farmers report inquiries from people who want to park on their ground while the world goes dark.  Pilot friends are going to fly around when the sun don't shine.  


No doubt we'll get plenty of warnings about looking at the sun.  Yes, we can look at it when it is totally covered, but even a sliver of light can damage the eye forever.  We all know not to look at a welder.  We need to make sure our darling granddaughter isn't allowed to look at the sun as it comes out from behind the moon.


Sunglasses won't work.  Even welding helmets won't work unless they're the very strongest filter.
