In this part of TX totality came very close to moonset this morning so we had some visibility problems, what with haze near the horizon and trees. The best view turned out to be from my bathroom window. Three of the children had asked to be awakened early to see it. I think they were only marginally impressed. Folks further west had a better view.
The light from dawn was pretty though. The smoke coming from the chimney does make it look cold. You can see how calm it was this morning.
