Like many, my group worried about the weather and what we would or could do about it (as in scrambling for clear skies if possible). We certainly had our doubts. Plan A (Jefferson City, MO) did not look particularly promising, but central Nebraska seemed worse. While central Tennessee would have been closer for us, a place to go was problematic. We stuck with Plan A, and luckily we were lucky. From our location in Chamois, MO, about 25 miles east of Jefferson City, we had clouds early that broke before 1st Contact. We had high level thin clouds that continued to thin and while present during totality, did not spoil the show. At our location we had about 150 people from various locations. License plates from 10 different states were counted in the parking area. Everyone was pumped and cooperative, almost like a large family reunion, no, maybe better.
We were quite happy with what we got.
So, where did people in the "path of totality" actually get skunked by the weather? I heard St. Joseph, MO, was mostly cloudy, and both Kansas City and Nashville had problems, but some people in both those locations did see at least some of totality. Is there any location that was completely socked in?
