BTW, the weather was perfect from Tuesday to Friday afternoon. We should have these things during the week. Oh wait, that only works for those some of us without those "pesky jobs" that get in the way.. 8)

We did have a great turnout though. It was good to see the large crowd at the Pitch-in. The food seemed extra good this time thanks to all of the great cooks.

I was supposed to be there Thursday. But the job got in the way.

The blue skies on Sunday were magnificent as well! It made our drive home via the Ohio River Scenic drive a nice extension. Today though, I pay for it all with 7 inch long grass and chores we put off.

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.

Lots of ways of looking at the weather at gatherings. I seem to remember the ones that actually draw us closer together. As the Saturday evening downpour started the neighbors carried over their pop up I broke out my extra 10 x 10 and grabbed some 2x8 planks to build a roof over the existing campfire coals. In about 12 minutes we had a tent city with 10 x 10 kitchen 10 x 10 dining room and 10 x 10 living room. About a dozen of us partied on amid the rain. The campfire protected from the rain caught the temporary roof on fire and in 15 minutes we had a 4 foot campfire that simply laughed at the rain.

I for one didn't mind the couple hours of liquid sunshine one little bit. :thumbsup:

Power loss? I must have been sleeping. :) and yes despite the rain a great weekend.

I started with nothing and still have most of it left.

We had a great time!
