Don't see myself or my wife taking part in that. I can think of too many things I could spend $525 on.

Looks like rain for Friday and Saturday are looking more likely.

Well, at least Thursday night practice will be good. Also looks like Saturday afternoon might be OK as well. Friday looks like a gully washer since they're calling for possible flood warnings in the area. Hard to tell though since metro Atlanta covers a pretty wide area and the forecast is general for all of it.

It's all cause some under sea level dweller cried about a storm headed his way so it moved. Although the better models have a much harder turn that the Atlanta area guys do, showing a bow over or south of Tampa and Jacksonville. It does that better, it doesn't, well joeb bring your shovel

There's a reason they call it "predicting weather". As much science that goes into it, there is still a level of uncertainty. I always approach the Petit with an attitude of "If it rains it rains" and whatever the conditions are, they are. A little rain always adds a little excitement and variability to the race.

Hope Ian steers more east for y'all. And for me. I won't be home and hate having the wife and kids solo during those things but yeah. Silent most of the season and then FU.

Taking all the gear down from the loft and checking what I need to update. The grill getting a well deserved bath and scrub cause it's a BEAUTIFUL 70 in the shade

As long as it dries overnight Saturday and minimal wind, the wind is what really sucks and hate packing wet gear without a lot of room in the yard

And bringing my rain prevention dance 2 bales of wheat straw

I don't have a canopy for the fence now though so if joeb has one that fits in the car

For your information my house is at a pleasant 40 ft above sea level sure a few hundred yards south that drops the 12 ft above sea level, but I'll take it!

Unfortunately I do not own a pop up. If my foot wasn't broke I would volunteer to pick one up on my way but not sure I can handle any additional work at this point.

I've changed my tune about the forecast a little bit. But if there's anyone that I want to be stuck with under a canopy for hours on end, it's all y'all.

Our hometown in FL just north of Tampa might get a direct hit, my weather concerns during the event now come solidly in second spot. My fingers will hurt from all the crossing they'll be doing....

I can't walk anywhere anyways so it's okay if I just have to sit my ass next to the table full of Bourbon and a cooler full of beer all day long. Camping during a tropical storm might be more palatable than what I would be doing at home.



Plus I got a new raincoat so I'll be good.
