Yup, but not down at ground level; well above the level any rockets are going to get to.....

Hard to tell this far ahead, but right now it looks like it might; 40% probability, scattered thunderstorms.

Hopefully it won't rain as heavily as it did last year, because that seemed really bad. Also, wouldn't the rockets getting constantly pelted by rain affect them ever so slightly? Especially if the rain varies in intensity. Wouldn't it be dangerous to have people standing in a field during a thunderstorm though?

Sound stopped working for me to, but its back. Just went out for a min. At least we missed nothing important. Those jester hats are cool, I hope I can get one at next years swap meet (that is, if I make it to the nats)
