Rain date sounds like an EXCELLENT plan after the soggy event last year! I'll see if I can make it out :)

For everyone that showed up and found out the event has been postponed due to rain forecast it's a fantastic opportunity to clean up your street and back lane instead. Since it's beautiful out today, this is what I plan to do.

Yes, that's what I did. Got a garbage bag of stuff including, strangely, two dead pigeons !

I plan to sit back next weekend with a beer in a lawn chair and watch !
