    Same here. We had 96.4% coverage and it was disappointing. I figured it was going to get pretty much dark. But after hearing someone talk about it from a 100% viewpoint, I can see what happened. The person said it was still light until the exact second it went 100% and then it just all of a sudden went dark. So as long as there is still even 98-99% of the sun showing, it's enough to keep it from being dark. It's only when it hits 100% that it becomes like night. Any less coverage than 100% and it disappoints as far as darkness goes.

    I saw it at 95.4%.

    It was still pretty cool.

    I think I was more taken with the actual outside lighting difference.

    Everything had kind of a cool blue tint to it.

    Pretty much a non-event here!

    Went out and looked at it a few times with Rog's welding helmet and it was cool to see the sun in a crescent shape, like the moon gets, but other than that....

    It turned kind of a golden color outside, probably because we have some forest fire smoke in the air.

    Yeah, it was almost like you were looking through not really strong sun glasses or something.
