Weather looking better

Post by 2Cents » Fri Mar 28, 2014 9:25 am

Studying a couple of different radars and weather discussions this morning seem to indicate a window of opportunity to get the show in tonight. Should be a quarter inch of rain or less this morning ending by 12-1pm at the latest. Lets go racing!

I agree, it actually looks like we could be just under clouds by 10:30 or so here in Carlisle! :dance:

I saw the same on the radar. Nothing really showing as a huge threat weather wise to the south & west of the track on the 'future map'.

Hopefully they get the show in tonight. Time to play the waiting game.

According to WC it is over now with only a 30 percent chance of a passing shower around 6 PM. No reason there can`t be a race tonite.

Supposed to be 57 degrees,could be a lot worse than that.

Once again the Grove mgmt drops the freaking ball. They use a form of Social Media to say the will announce by 2 PM their intentions. its 325PM and all I hear is crickets.
I use to like Oreo Cookies and Chocolate milk.
