Thanks, but by 2017, I will have forgotten what you told me today.

No, seriously, that is interesting information, so thank you.. I wonder if it will bring in some tourists.

Folks jet all over the word to be in eclipses. I'm sure there will be more than a few who arrive here just to watch this one.

Rigby is only 7 miles way from Idaho Falls. Rexburg is 35 miles up the road.

BAD NEWS TONIGHT. Network news shows traffic backed up for miles already in Oregon. Says small towns are not equipped to deal with the crush. Millions of people on the way. Running out of solar viewers.

My bad, fake network news strikes again. The Big line of campers and motorhomes was headed to a hippie festival, not early arrivals for the eclipse.
I should know better by now,

I don't think that's fake news. The festival is happening because of the eclipse.

Yes, but the network broadcast did not explain that detail. THe reporter was discussing the projected congestion without explaining the traffic jam was not people inbound for the Monday show.
