Is anyone worried about unknown side effects of the coming eclipse in it's path over Wyoming?

What possible side effects could there be? Solar panels will quit producing for a short time during full black out but this time of year its almost irrelevant.

A couple of local veterinarians are postulating that animals could be affected - sort of like they are when an earthquake is imminent. Another though is that in this narrow blackout zone communications could have burps.

I guess we will find out for sure in a few days. I can remember a full eclipse happening when I was a kid and nothing happened with communications at that time but that was before the era of satellite communications technology.

As far as Wyoming goes, those who live within the totality (70 miles) zone are charging $100 a night parking on their property for something God made for free.

This was at complete blackout from our deck. Because I did not have a filter on the camera you can't see the crescent. We were smack dab in the middle of the totality corridor. When it went dark, it was not black but extremely reduced normal. I kept my eye on the thermometer and temperature did not change. Yorkies were a little restless but unafraid to go out into the yard (when you gotta go!). The only thing we noticed out of the ordinary was static on our house phone.
