Soul-crushing traffic may plague the total solar eclipse — these maps reveal the worst choke points
Interesting analysis of Google Maps and GPS data. It shows the, driveshed data for the spots on Interstate highways where the path of totality crosses them.
My "destination" is #2 on the list - 35.8 million people within "driving distance". Working on a Plan 'B'.
I was lucky enough to be able to get under the center of the path of totality in Eastern Oregon. Lemme tell you, totality is a COMPLETELY different situation than getting only most of the sun covered. Those two minutes were utterly priceless, and EVERYONE should partake in it if they can. It's... I really can't find words for it. Humbling, awe inspiring, utterly captivating... And far, FAR too brief.
