We were informed today by Mary, our hairdresser, that yesterday’s solar eclipse was best around 5:15. We didn’t look at it until around 6:30 so maybe there was more to it than we thought. The Eureka newspaper (called locally the Times-Substandard) didn’t even have any articles about the eclipse either before or after it happened. I only found out about it from a web site I visit each morning, but not being local it didn’t give an exact time.
Speaking of Mary, she is featured in today’s photo, although she doesn’t wear costumes like this when she cuts our hair. You can see more pictures of her and this 1880s bustle dress on the vintage fashion site.
