That’s what I hear people say when weather predictions fail, as they did this week. The Harbor Loop Concert and Seafood Throwdown were both canceled on Thursday due to warnings of severe thunderstorms and flash floods. Not a drop of rain fell. The Farmers Market braved the storm that never was and now they all look like geniuses! So next time the weather man or woman predicts severe weather on a Summer Thursday, go to Stage Fort Park and join the good people who put on the Farmers Market RAIN OR SHINE in defiance.
When light rain finally fell yesterday, the Zip Line Kid spent the entire time outside with a friend — not necessarily in defiance — neither of them seemed to care that it was raining. Or perhaps they were inspired by it. They got out a big barrel, filled it up with water, threw stuff in and went bobbing — reveling in the joy of childhood. Joey would have gotten a good picture of it. Vickie and I just sat on the porch with a glass of wine and relished the gentle warm rain on a midsummer night.
Regardless of what the unpredictable weather decides to hand us tonight, there’s plenty of good music around the Cape. It’s going on right now and will continue into the wee hours. See the full live music lineup here.
