Just wondering if anybody was out fishing during the eclipse Monday, as well as just before & just after. It does not matter if you were using R-n-R or set lines.
Here locally in the B-CS (Texas A&M) area, we had a blockage of about 68.7% at the most. Here, it began at 11:43 AM (Central Daylight Time). The max was at 1:11 PM. And it ended here at 2:42 PM.
Naturally I had to work. But even though it was light outside, it had this weird tint or hue, and slightly less bright look around. I walked out of the shop & the shade just a few minutes before the max (about 1 PM), and as I stepped out of the shade, into the sunlight, I honestly did not feel a temperature shift. If I did, it was very minimal. As I drove to get a bite of lunch, I had my shades (tinted safety glasses) on, and with only about 31.3% it was still very light outside but looked real weird & also dim, all at the same time.
But about 3:50 PM after an hour of the eclipse ending, it was smoking hot outside & rays reflected off the other vehicles parked by the shop.
So if your were fishing, did you note anything different during the eclipse? I understand the one in 2024 is supposed to darken Dallas, as to what my Mother heard. It is supposed to cut through Texas, so I will have to research that one.
