(WIBW) - Seems everyone has jumped on the solar eclipse bandwagon, which is making those special glasses you'll need to protect your eyes a hot commodity!
First off, yes you really do need the glasses. I explained why in this recent To Your Health report.
It seems people are having trouble finding the special shades in these final days before the eclipse. Being in or very near the path of totality is a very cool thing! I'm happy to pass along a couple more chances at free glasses.
