Some days, when there's a warm shower dripping out of the sky, Amethyst likes to go out and let it wash her cares and worries away.

Then she goes in, wraps herself up in towels, and sits in front of the heater.

She's still all wet, though.

All last year and this year so far - rain.
I really hope that 8-21 will be sunny. There will be a partial solar eclipse that I look forward to.
They are NOT common. Since 1968 or 1969, I have only seen 2 (two) and neither was total. So I never felt the Eclipse Wind , nor is any of the area flat plains. Far too many trees,houses,etc., so one won't see the bands of light & dark moving across the land as the eclipse is in progress,before totality.
Today is sunny ...

Hopefully, you'll get to see it.  I've seen a few partial eclipses, but this will be my first total solar eclipse.  Bizarrely, all I'll have to do to see it is walk out my front door.  Fortunately, the skies are typically clear this time of year in this part of the Pacific Northwest.

(Amethyst is a native of the Pacific Northwest, so she's familiar with the rain.  Incidentally, she'll also be able to see totality, assuming she can get a few minutes away from work.)

Hope you enjoyed it. I managed to see something at ~2:30 p.m. The computer news didn't want to bother with partial eclipses, so I did not know of any 25%,50%,75% ranges.

Around 2:30 p.m. the sunshine had an early evening look and the pinhole projection showed about 25-30% blockage of the disk. It was actually brighter at 6 p.m. than at 2:30 p.,m. BUT we never get a total eclipse here...

Tell me of the Eclipse Wind, the bands,,...

To be honest, most of my attention was focused on the eclipse itself.  Totality was less than a minute where I live, maybe something like 40 seconds or so, not leaving me with a lot of time for a general sketch of the diamond rings on either side of totality or of the corona, which was the part I really wanted to see.  Considering all the trees around about, it's likely I wouldn't have seen any bands had I looked, and any changes in the breezes didn't register with me at the time.  I did spare the barest of glances to see what else was out, but only noticed Venus before I re-focused on the eclipse.  I knew I didn't have enough time fore much else.

Things that stuck out for me was just how small the whole show was.  The Sun and Moon's diameters are only half a degree, which isn't all that big.  Also, the Moon can really zip along.  I was expecting a more leisurely pace, but the diamond rings were quick and the Baily's beads were barely more than a flicker that was gone (not to mention teeny) before they fully registered.

It's now more obvious to me why some people will spend the money to chase eclipses.  There just isn't enough time to see it all in any one eclipse.  But at least I got to see the corona and the diamond rings.

I should have mentioned that the bands are seen on wide open plains, but you live in a woody region.
I think in 7 years there will be a much better partial eclipse in my area. God willing I will be around,and in all my faculties to see it.

The shortness of a total eclipse has encouraged chasing an eclipse by jet planes (2 to further extend viewing period).
Baily's beads -  mountains of the moon.

I think the next solar eclipse slides in from Mexico, through Texas, up to New England, and off the Canadian Maritimes.  Sometime in the 2040s, one is supposed to cross the US similarly to this last one albeit several miles more southward, but who knows if we'd last that long.

It probably doesn't help that solar eclipses happen once a year at most, sometimes not at all, and often in distant and difficult to reach lands.  On the other hand, they move according to a number of cycles, so their paths can be reliably predicted.  For example, last month's eclipse will basically repeat itself in just over a decade, but a third of the globe away, over in the Mediterranean area.

This succeeds in suggesting the way rain-soaked clothes seem transparent . It also suggests the aroma of rainy air.

Would have posted this a few minutes earlier, BUT this program has been acting out lately, and shorted out with a crap "No members" message when i tried to run the gallery. I finally had to restart the computer, to reload.

Thanks.  I'm glad I could convey all that. :)  Mostly I wanted to show her hair, fur, and clothes affected by the rain, soaked and sticking to her instead of mysteriously unaffected by falling water. :p  The rain effect was basically made by inking a number of streaks across the page using a ruler to keep them straight.

It seems this is the month for computer problems.  One reason why I was so delinquent in getting back to you before was that I'd switched computers for use on the internet, from an older operating system to one still supported.

In Shakespeare's classic "The Tempest" after Propero's storm washes the cast ashore, they arrive (appearing on stage) dry as can be. Audiences have wondered why they weren't as you described Amethyst during & after the rain. It was stressed that this was a mystic storm. Must stop now - event about to occur !

Basically, a handwave to explain away why dunking the actors in water for their first one or two scenes would be impractical.
