People in southwest Michigan saw only a partial eclipse of the sun on Monday, if clouds didn't get in the way. About 82-percent of the sun's surface was hidden by the moon. But other parts of the country were treated to a total eclipse and many Michiganders took to the road to witness the spectacle. I was one of them. My brother Russell and I drove an hour south of Saint Louis, Missouri, to experience “totality” for the first time with some friends.
