On Monday, most of Brazoria County sent our kids off to school and strained through special glasses to get a glimpse of the first solar eclipse in 38 years.

I might've stayed if tide surge wasn't the key problem out here after where the lil winder might hit! But I'll never stay again near the coast. So just bec it's a cat one now, see how Harvey misbehaved and hung around. 70+mph winds in Victoria were too loud for comfort!
