Looks like it might rain at the first St. Louis event!

    It's still 9 days away but I was hoping for a dry first event to get the feel back for the car. Hopefully it will change....

    Its only when we say how nice the weather will be!! Saying its going to rain when the forcast call for rain is OK. However, rain would be a nice change. I remember an event with sleet a few years back.

    Awww I wasn't picking on you. Welcome to the sport[:)] My first weather comment as a rookie was a discussion about everytime I took my car out of the garage it rained. I was told to stay home!

    Yeah right! I seem to remember a certain person running around in a yellow raincoat after mentioning a "light sprinkle" in the forecast. The water was ankle deep during course set-up the next Sunday and nobody had a rope. I think a bungee cord was mentioned several times throughout the day[:D]

    Yeah I think those of us that drove back from Walnut Ridge took the hit for the Solo program as far as the rain is concerned. [st]

    I considered, once I had figured out I was on 60 instead of 67, staying on 60 and going up 55. Glad I didn't, I went through a few rough spots on 67, but didn't run into anything too major, or too much traffic, though I seemed to put a spur in a little red Mini that I passed just north of Farmington

    We got the worst hit about 5:30 in the StL area - I was wondering where you all were on the road and how bad it was south of here.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who made that mistake. The "main road rule" doesn't apply north of Poplar Bluff, its too easy to go with the flow and end up on 60. We continued on to Sikeston and up 55. Not too bad really. If not for the storm we'd have made good time. But that was one heck of a storm in Perry County.

    I drove west from Walnut Ridge for about an hour over to 63 and then due north. I could see the dark clouds rolling towards me, but blue skies to the north. Kept hoping that I could beat the storm to Hardy and eek out of it too the north. About 30 minutes after I left there headed north, I heard on the radion that tennis ball sized hail was reported there. *wipes forehead* Close one. The hail clobbered by friend's van and smashed all the siding on the back of his house, though. I had some rain until I hit Rolla, but blue skies after that.

    we had to stop for a bit due to the downpur/hail. It was nuts. A few minutes and it blew out, and we had a smooth run from Farmington on back, gawking at the carnage from the wind. One of the elephants at that dealership in Farmington even blew over [:)]

    Glad you got home ok, Mark.

    I had to leave the Walnut Ridge event early because we had a large group of guests coming over for dinner. I was fortunate enough not to encounter any kind of bad weather. I left Pocahontas at about 12:40 and I was home at 3:00 ( yes, I was hauling @$$). I sympathize for all of you that left later in the day and hope that none of you got any hail damage.
