The weather is not looking good. The rest of my clan left Saturday and they said it rained most of the day yesterday (Sunday) and it looks like they are getting rained on again today... I will know for sure tonight when I talk to them.
I am leaving Saturday.. I hope it clears up some. I don't mind some rain but I'm hoping not to see it every day!
I see some blue skies right this moment...
Forecast looks fairly normal for this time of year...
