One week to go.
My weather app shows rain in Boonsboro on Wednesday, but clear Thursday through Sunday.
...but a lot could change between now and then.

BGRs and precipitation just go together. DAMHIK :wink:

We saw this front approaching, took appropriate cover while it quickly passed over us, and were on the road again soon enough.

Have a great tine everyone. I was planning on coming, but my wife has something going on Sunday, and I need to be here. I thought about coming for part of it, but I am needed around here.
