Solar Eclipse

Timmy and I watched the solar eclipse this morning. It was around 9:30 in the morning and for about 6 minutes there was complete darkness. It was really cool. It would have been cooler if it hadn't also been thunder storming at the same time. There was a bunch of lightning and the sky was all clouds so you couldn't actually see the sun get covered. Bummer, but I forgot to get the special glasses to look at the sun anyway, so I guess we were lucky. This will not happen again in Shanghai for another 500 years, pretty cool. I turned off all the lights so we could really see how dark it was, but Tim didn't like that and climbed up on the bed to turn the lights back on. "Mama, light, Mama." :)
