It's predicted to be a nightmare on the roads. Suppose if you arrive a couple days early and don't try to get home on the 21st, it might be more manageable. Psst, don't tell anyone, but it's going to be 98% on top of Gordon Ridge (my backyard). Word on the science street is you can't tell the difference with the naked eye. Well, eclipse glassed eye.

If you are in the totality you get to take your glasses off, so being at 99% is about as good as if you were in Seattle.

Seattle is 91.9%

Actually, we're closer to 99.3% (up on Gordon Ridge).

100% = no glasses and you get to see the corona, this is the big deal about an eclipse.
99.9% and under = glasses stay on and you get to see the moon's silhouette on the sun through glasses that make it impossible to see anything else.
