THERE MIGHT NOT be a more helpless feeling than having an outdoor event and checking the radar. Those big green blobs moving from the west? Well. It ain't Silly Putty.
We are supposed to have our first Concert in the Plaza at 11 a.m. An hour and 15 minutes to go, and it's not looking good.
There's no cover on the stage, and rain will kill the crowd, though the food vendors could still show up and maybe a few brave souls would venture out. But I'd get hit by lightning if I tried to play, and my strings would get rusty, and I'd shrink.
Excuses, excuses, excuses.
Having been through a million Gus Macker rain delays and seeing storms wash out many an event, I have come to the conclusion that there is nothing you can do.
Except watch this ...
