According to every weatherman & woman, it looks like we're going to get hit with a large rainstorm. Now back on July 28th, I cancelled this same country show, because all the experts (snicker snicker) predicted a torrential thunderstorm to hit our area that day, between 5 & 8pm -- so the show was called. Well low & behold at 4:45pm that day, the skies miraculously cleared, and the sun came back out.
So I'm taking a page from the WHO, and saying, "We Won't Get Fooled Again"! Today, I'm going to wait awhile before making the call. Let's see what develops. As of right now, the Carmine Dio & Roaring Thunder show is happening at 6pm, at historic Powers Park.. Stay tuned for updates.
