Solar eclipse

As a keen astronomer, was just wondering if any of you guys in the US were lucky enough to witness the eclipse today?

It was cloudy in Baltimore, so I wasn't able to see anything. :/

We were close to totality here in Medford Oregon. We did have smoke from forest fires around our area, but it was still visible. Quite a show.

Yup... was at work but EVERYONE was out at the parking lot for the better part of the hour when the moon did it's thing.

Pretty mind blowing when day (mid morning) turned to dusk - and just as suddenly - back again to daylight. We weren't in the totality band in Portland, but close enough to maybe 98%.
