The Pigtown Festival is still going on as planned, despite the dire forecast. My neighbour Jen and I decided to bail out. Most of my things are paper-based and with the humidity hovering around 97%, it will all be ruined. We also don't think that people will be strolling by, admiring our goods and spending their money!
It's just raining a little now, but we got about a quarter-inch overnight with the early bands of the storm. However, they're predicting that the weather will deteriorate as the day goes on. But, as with hurricanes, the weather tomorrow will be wonderful!
