As you may be aware, there was a total solar eclipse across much of the US today. Here at East Wind we experienced 96% of totality. The world dimmed and cooled. The shadows cast by leaves all turned to crescents. Venus could be seen in the sky at the ‘height’ of the day.
It was an interesting couple hours, for sure! A bunch of East Winders enjoyed the event out on the Music Room lawn.
A big van of East Winders traveled north to southern Illinois to observe the longest duration of totality. No reports back yet, but I’m sure they had a great time with millions of others who were able to observe totality. The next total solar eclipse is April 8th, 2024 and East Wind’s land will be under the area of totality. Looking forward to that, happy eclipse y’all!
