WHAT WE THINK: A total eclipse of our day

Well that was fun!

The build up was immense, the hype beyond anything even the sporting world could produce.

But the solar eclipse lived up to its billing as one of the greatest celestial shows on earth.

Maybe Shelby County wasn’t in the path of totality and maybe it’s didn’t get dark enough to fool our bats into coming out and our chickens into going in to roost.

It turns out about 5 percent of the sun is still a lot of light.
