Likely, everything will come to a thud during the eclipse this afternoon. It’s not often something like this happens so let’s enjoy it. Two local parks are having viewing events. The Law Firm of Harbinson Brzykcy, and Corbett will host a viewing at Matheson Park beginning at 1pm. Rocky Face Park will host a viewing as well.
