  1. Not sure. My sister's BF took the photo. I think he at least had a polarizer on. You can't use the full solar filters during totality, there isn't enough light.
  2. From Watts Bar lake this afternoon. What an amazing experience. I can't really put it into words. I believe Mercury is visible in this image to the left. This was taken on a Nikon DSLR.
  3. What on earth is the reasoning for this? Why would they close off one of the best viewing areas in the country?
  4. I'm going to try to get to the top of the Cherohala Skyway. It's at 5400 ft, so heat won't be an issue, but cloud cover might be. There are several balds in the area that would make great vantage points.
  5. 39 this morning. Should be even cooler tomorrow morning.
  6. Just over 6" of rain this week, with 3.2" of that falling in the last 20 hours. Lots of roads closed now due to flooding. Haven't seen that around here in a while.
  7. 17 this morning. 2nd coldest temp I recorded all winter.
  8. Had flurries pretty much all day today. Didn't amount to much. Just a bit of white on top of my windshield wipers.
  9. Looks like we wound up with a little under an inch total. Can't complain too much about that after this warm winter.
  10. I've still got some snow left. I've got tiny ice crystals falling now. Something in between sleet and snow. 32 IMBY.
  11. And now I am seeing he first flakes of the day. Snow/sleet mix falling. Temp is 35 and dropping. Ugh. Back to all sleet. 34.
  12. Moderate sleet here. Temp is down to 36. Wet bulb is very close to the freezing mark. I'm expecting to see some flakes mixing in any time now.
  13. It will be interesting to see what form this first band of precip takes as it moves into the area. Dual pol says it is rain, but I've not seen any rain at all today, just sleet. Temp is 37 with RH of 70%. Wet bulb is 32 on the nose.
  14. You need the heavier precip to drop the temp. If t stays light it may not be able to completely change over.
