Think positive! you will get a nice free car wash on the way to the show!. Then after you get there you can watch the speed boat races on the runway!

8:30 AM Thu and it is sprinkling right now.
Latest forecast according to wunderground.com is:
Sprinkles in the morning today
Fri - 40%
Fri night and Sat - 100%
Sun - 10%
I'm heading out to the field in a couple of hours. Looks as if today's sprinkles
will pass through by then after looking at the radar.

It is raining cats and dogs here in Tucson Arizona! All weather here comes from Phoenix so it must be wet there as well. You all let me know if you need your scuba tanks re filled at the field!

Quick...change the event to the 1st Annual Arizona Electric Float Fly Festival!

Unfortunately, I cancelled my hotel reservation in Mesa. We wanted to attend so bad but 80-100% chance of rain, plus the heavy rain we've experienced here in the High Desert was the final straw.

For those who still plan to make the event, have fun!

Best,
Tony
