From eclipse2017.nasa.gov: Where Can You See It? You can see a partial eclipse, where the moon covers only a part of the sun, anywhere in North America (see “Who can see it?”). To see a total eclipse, where the moon fully covers the sun for a short few minutes, you must be in the path of totality. The path of totality is a relatively thin ribbon, around 70 miles wide, that will cross the U.S. from West to East. The first point of contact will be at Lincoln Beach, Oregon at 9:05 a.m. PDT. Totality begins there at 10:16 a.m. PDT. Over the next hour and a half, it will cross through Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and North and South Carolina. The total eclipse will end near Charleston, South Carolina at 2:48 p.m. EDT. From there the lunar shadow leaves the United States at 4:09 EDT. Its longest duration will be near Carbondale, Illinois, where the sun will be completely covered for two minutes and 40 seconds.
On the Wednesday of the ice storm (two days before the snow storm), I drove to Mount Vernon Square for dinner, only to be aghast at a locked door. I brought this up with the GM later (over a week later), and she didn't even realize that she had posted on Facebook, but not Twitter. I don't check Facebook for up-to-the-minute announcements; I check Twitter - she was horrified, but it was an oversight, and I was consoled by an *awesome* dinner at Corduroy, so all is forgiven (though it did take me *two hours* to drive six miles getting home). Here's some really, really good advice to restaurateurs needing to make closure announcements: do it *both* on Twitter and Facebook after you announce it on donrockwell.com. (*) Facebook is not enough. And if you're going to do it on Twitter, you might as well have your Tweets roll over onto your Facebook page (there's a way to set this up - write me if you need help, and I'll be glad to walk you through the very quick and easy process). (*) In all seriousness, if you post your urgent announcement here, and ask me to Tweet it for you, I'll be happy to, and it will get to a wide audience very quickly. Make sure to email me as well in case I'm not on the website (send me a PM, and I'll write you back with my email address), and preferably send me a text message too. @dcdining has a pretty strong group of followers on Twitter, I'll ask people to spread the word, and I'm happy to help any restaurant out that writes me (a lot of newer places don't have tons of followers, and I enjoy helping people, so ... just ask!)
