We missed the eclipse (in its totality)

It has been overcast with low cloud and a drizzle all day. The sky has remained the same dull, diffuse, even. grey with no sign of any letting up.

And so we missed the great theatrics that were taking place above the cloud as the moon danced around the earth and obscured the sun. That the theatrics took place is entirely a matter of faith because under the thick cloud cover it was not even possible to discern in which quarter the sun lay – let alone whether any eclipse was taking place.
