CATCH THE ECLIPSE ON MONDAY! In our area about three quarters of the sun will be blocked by the moon for around a half hour Monday afternoon. If we have clear skies, we’ll have a great view—but don’t look at the sun, even partially obscured, with unprotected eyes. Sunglasses don’t offer enough protection—only approved solar viewing glasses or filters should be used. For everything you need to know about the eclipse (and more), click here: https://eclipse2017.
