Effect Solar Eclipse will have

Postby FlyingLSimmentals » Sun Aug 13, 2017 5:00 pm

on the wildlife and livestock. Someone asked dad that today. I figure it won't bother them, it's not gonna bother me. After all its just a short period of time. I don't know, maybe the turkey will roost in the middle of the day.

Not much if not in the direct path of darkness , me thinks . However me and the misses are taking a short trip to watch and I have several due anytime, so murphy will probably make his presence known .

I'm gonna stall my horses. I really hope we don't get the crowds here they are predicting.

Not the first total eclipse that ever happened.
I don't expect to see any chaos with the cows, but over on the hobby boards, all the goat people are scared their goats and sheep are gonna go nuts, as well as those high price Livestock Guardian Dogs they all gotta have.

We're the longest duration here. "Supposedly " were going to experience total darkness. NASA has rented the high school. The Vatican has sent their scientist. Every hotel room in town is booked. Several have rented their homes. About every parking place in town is spoken for.

Lexington station had a story on it. They are setting up emergency centers and the state has agencies making preparations for special needs and traffic.

Yeah everyone is saying it is gonna be chaotic and the area swarmed. I personally thought I'll just go on about my business and treat it like a typical day on the farm but now I'm thinking on watching it and joining the crowd. Heard someone nearby rented their house out for $5000 a night for 3 nights. My church is gonna be packed and will be shuttling people back and forth to the Sol Quest event in Christian County. Figure highway 91 is going to be bumper to bumper. I don't know, the patio sounds better all the time. Might just sit around with the shotgun looking for green men or science nuts trespassing or something.
Figure the animals have more sense and will go on being animals and do their thing for 2 minutes.

Me too, but I'm driving north hoping to find a rural county back road so my kids and grandkids can see it. What is your address in case I get lost?

One side effect of the eclipse is shutting me down on the air arc project I had planned. Not a #14 shade to be had anywhere. I even called my buddies at the mine.....they've been wiped out too.

Yes the brewing of beer, making of wine, and distilling whiskey is turning it to quit the business here.
