Well Friday was interesting. Lots of clouds, but sporadic bugs. Mother nature decided to show us that we don’t know everything! That being said, the evening was fantastic, so long as you avoided the areas with fog kicking around. We had areas that saw a torrential downpour for about 2 minutes, and not 100 yards up the road – nothing! But, the extra humidity was enough to make the fog show up, much to our chagrin. Today, we are looking at cooler temps, and mostly cloudy skies – let’s hope Mother Nature behaves more “normally” today!
