The 10 day weather forecast is showing partly cloudy, 20% chance of rain with high of 69 on Friday and Saturday.

Cross your fingers, throw some salt over your shoulder and keep praying to God that this weather holds or gets better!

The trike probably belongs to Chris and Joan Law. One of the ramps (turquoise?) would be James and Lillian Law's. I'd guess the racecar might be Billy Bruce's autocrosser.

I saw Billy walking a few minutes about but race car was Raymond Paul and yes the trike is Chris'. The ramp looks like James' heard he was sick and not coming. We just came into town for lunch and saw lots more cars. Today is the rainy day and we went hiking, drizzle is all so far but it's chilly, saw 58 at noon.

Saw posts on FB of the Chair City folks on their way as is Maybellene. Stan Gee is on his way with the nice beige Corvan too. Helen is like Mecca in April for 'vairs!

Got up here at 5 pm yesterday. Rick followed upin his 65 Monza 4 door.

Rainy all evening. Saw 4 Vairs at the Unicoi campground lodge.

Rain has passed. Hope for a great day.
