Possible rain for the Swap day?

tweetypye(z8/sc AL)April 27, 2009

I know it's a week away, but the weather channel has scattered thunderstorms in the forecast for Fri., Sat., and Sun. this week. I was just wondering if we have a backup plan for the swap just in case the weather doesn't cooperate for us Saturday? I'd sure hate to dig all the dl's I've traded and not be able to get them to everyone.

Yes, that has me worried too. But we do need more rain, just hope it arrives before Saturday. Yesterday morning, I tilled up a new bed, could not believe how dry the soil was. I did get several things planted. Joyce

My soil hasn't dried out yet, but we are beginning to need more rain. Maybe it'll hold off for Sat. and rain Sat. night and Sunday. I've got lots of dl's to dig Friday, don't want to do that in the rain!! :)

Tonight's forecast for the weekend said only a 30% chance of rain (at least for the Bham area). Maybe if it rains at all, it will be the typical summer timing, in the afternoon rather than in the a.m.

Yep, they are now saying small chances of afternoon pop up showers so we should be fine, although I wouldn't mind a good shower once the swap is finished. We're getting a little dry with all these high temps this week.

We've had rain before. Just bring a BIG umbrella. Look at the bright side, there is a 30% chance of rain and 70% chance it won't.
