Fingers crossed...

At the moment it's 2-1 in favour of a sunny day, with only the BBC (aka Met Office) predicting rain all day.

Oh dear. Wet weather is looking highly likely. Bring a waterproof layer!

Pessimist! I don't mind rain in play (can be awesome) but don't like being wet afterwards. Meh, look at the forecast late Friday and we might have a better idea.

We can try and pack the fly sheet as well, just have to see what space is in the car.

Good plan, Headshot has the CiA tarps! A dryish social would be tops.

I also have a crappy white gazebo thing that we can throw some camo tarps over.

Heh, no point in banking on a forecast yet - still contradictory. One says a spell of light rain in the afternoon, another a thunderstorm late afternoon (excellent). Either way, it looks showery not a cold day of sheeting rain, so not bad really. Much prefer that than a baking day. Mmmmnnn, baking day - Dean's birthday cake!

Plus, the odd spot of rain always helps with the beret shaping. :giggle:

Looks like it'll be a bit damp tomorrow, still I guess it'll be similar to the real conditions of June '44

And as an old friend of mine would always say..." stop moaning about the rain...your skin is waterproof" :lol:

There is going to be a nice breeze so we shouldn't get too steamy. I've been cutting back a big tree this morning and I was sweating cobs as the humidity is so high and the air so still.

Anyway, sunshine and showers with the possibility of a thunderstorm in the afternoon. Light breeze building to windy. Probably no rain for the Friday or Saturday socials.
