It's no secret that the long-awaited Total Solar Eclipse is coming Monday, August 21st.  During this 'More to the Story' (originally aired July 26th), we find out how Upstate South Carolina is preparing for this rare event. It just so happens that parts of the upstate, including Greenville, will be right in the center of the eclipse's path of totality.  Interviewed about this was Elizabeth LaFleur of the Greenville News.
