I was going to but thought it might be super crowded at the two places I was wanting to go to. Sounds like it will be a zoo on the roads tomorrow.

Default The ZOO !! <'TK><

I drove back from Rock Hall, Maryland yesterday and the roads were a zoo... Not to bad going through Washington at 5:00 AM in the morning which is always a zoo whether your driving or not. But I-64, I-81, and I-40 was a mess for people heading to Tennessee. You would be running 75 MPH one minute then come to a complete stop for no apparent reason?. Then take off again. The rest stops was more like a carnival ... Literally hundreds of people and the men's restroom had lines coming out of the door to the street. And lines of cars backed up on the entrance ramp to find parking ... All for 2.5 minutes of Darkness ...

I always do my Kroger grocery run on Sunday afternoon. I went yesterday and it was no different than any other Sunday except for the one Japanese couple that were speaking Japanese. Traffic this morning into Nashville was a breeze. I wish the traffic into Nashville was like this everyday!!

You have been in the dark for so long I am surprised you noticed the eclipse.

That was really cool. I fished JPP this morning. I left around 1130 because the heat was bad and there were just as much boat traffic as a holiday weekend. I didn't want to leave as the bass bite had just started getting good around 1030. On a side not it was awesome how the heat and humidity just disappeared for that 15 minutes or so during the eclipse. Hope all you guys got to see it bc I wasn't personally excited about watching it but my dad was very excited. I got to his shop around 1245 and the next hour spent watching the eclipse with him just made my day and his.

Someone called into 104.5 radio who was on the water and said the stripers/hybrids started busted at the surface right at totality. Not sure what lake he was on, guessing JPP.
