"I am from Southern Illinois and happen to live right in the Line of Totality for the Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017. (We are in the Line of Totality, again, for 2024.) With massive amounts of out-of-towners flocking to our area for the event, many offices chose to close that day, including mine. So, we made a day of it at home! We grilled burgers while waiting for totality and snacking on my own created snack mix that represented sun and moon characteristics. We then finished off with "Solar Eclipse Cookies" (shortbread thumbprint cookies with blackberry jam)."
