Your first-hand reporter comments on the eclipse as he saw it.

I know the Williams expedition must have been in a better position than I was. Hood River is 60 miles due east of Portland on the Columbia River. I sat on the deck facing east and could see the sun.

I would say that (as you can see by the map) by 10:20 am there was a hint of darkness, rather like the time for a sun-downer. I turned my chair due north. Buffy the wonder dog was disinterested. The neighbors cats, Atticus and Coco, stopped by for a stretch and a meow, but they always do. Birds seem to go about their business with no hint of retiring for the night. The river was placid, no wind, no kite surfers or paddle boarders. Snowy Mt Adams kept steady shadows over the Yakima Nation.

In a few minutes, the sun shine was bright again. If I were a Druid living in Hood River, I would be questioning my religion.

 A Trump speech actually with a beginning, middle, and end. I bring to your attention my prediction on 11 August:

 In one of those hidden in the comments statements that will probably not be read, this “Mark My Words” revelation I have just received while enjoying a Pimm’s Cup.

Trump will become a War President and as such will be able to put aside all the “follow the money” investigations being pursued by Special Investigator Mueller.

Well, Forget it!

The Phoenix display may set up the continuing positioning:

The President Who Is Preserving Our History And Heritage!
