Everything is working as expected. Most noted was the power in green light on the control panel being illuminated. That is the first time since the power surge the power in light was illuminated.

I reconnected the refrigerator to its receptacle coming off the extension cord for the first time since July eighth, that is important and closing the cover outside the refrigerator. The house batteries are now being charged thru the inverter (and the solar panels).

Fogy starting the drive this morning but that cleared after an hour or so. Leaving about seven-thirty, we stayed off interstate ninety-five expecting too much traffic out there. We had picked a place for lunch and that was our drive to location. Taking the back roads over to US 1 heading south towards Columbia, South Carolina.
|In the parking lot for the Eclipse viewing|
After lunch we went outside to the parking lot for our viewing area, the restaurant parking lot. It was partly cloudy but it got worse to mostly cloudy at the total eclipse time. We were able to see and get pictures going to half way. After that it was only clouds and the change in daylight that was noticeable at the one hundred percent coverage, temperature cooled without the direct sunlight. After the total and decreasing there was a break in the clouds and we were able to view the moon passing the sun.
We tried to make a faster return but we ran into traffic on interstate twenty and ninety-five. We stopped in Florence, SC for gasoline and got back on ninety-five for a short way before getting off and going to the back roads for the rest of our return trip.
