We got 70%, which is indistinguishable from the normal sun unless you're looking at it.

We were 80 something percent here. Went to my local library because they were handing out glasses. They ran out, but these nice high school girls let me borrow theirs. Made my own pinhole projector at the library as well. Really neat. In 2024, it's going to be closer to us, so we're driving to Ohio and getting a hotel to see it in totality then so we can experience it. Pretty neat! Clouds came about 2 minutes after the peak so it was perfect.
