Yes, it's raining. No, it won't be raining all day. We anticipate clearing after noon, and being able to run the first round of eliminations on schedule later on today. In the meantime, enjoy this video tutorial on crafting a makeshift raincoat out of a garbage bag, hosted by Trey Capps:

So, does that mean Q3 is a wash?

No decision on that yet. I know that there are some late arrivals who didn't get a hit in yesterday, and we want to give them a chance to get into the program if at all possible. As soon as we know, I'll pass the info along.

We got it all in, thanks to the fact that the Route 66 staff can get this track dry in about 45 minutes. Today should be a much better day, weather-wise.
