My in-laws live in Charleston, South Carolina, so I decided we were descending upon them to see the solar eclipse, as they were in the line of totality and the Bay Area was not. My mother-in-law warned me they’d been getting a lot of afternoon thunderstorms so there was a fairly good chance we’d miss it due to clouds, and the afternoon of the big event it wasn’t looking particularly promising. The first time I went out and checked, there was nothing to see but big storm clouds. Fifteen minutes later I checked again and the beginning of the eclipse was visible through my solar glasses, so I shouted to my mother-in-law to come out, and from then on we endured the heat, humidity, and mosquitoes to watch the show the best we could through the clouds. One good thing about the clouds, though, is they at times made some cool patterns on the sun.
