Just made another trip last night and literally looked everywhere - garden center, sunglass section, eye glass / pharmacy section, etc.....

The customer service - as far as knowing, assisting, finding, helping, etc....the eclipse glasses - at Lowe's wasn't much better. I started searching for these things well over a month ago.
Thats funny. I ordered my eclipse glasses on Ebay weeks ago. Now it seems like everytime I'm in Walmart or Lowes I see them. I find your difficulty hard to understand.

Even with the clouds you can see it perfectly using eclipse glasses. Very cool.
