Some have been planning for it for years. Most communities in its path

rooms in their homes and some who have campers are renting them out.

Note for those interested: We will gather at the church building here
in De Soto from 11:00 to 2:00 and have Bible study and fellowship
while we watch for the eclipse. So come and be with us.
