Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
Well, I'll be kicked! As my father used to say.
Turns out that we had beautiful weather for the parade (just ended), sunny, a little breezy, no rain. Don't know what will happen the rest of the day; showers are forecast. The only times I've ever gotten sunburnt in Juneau was on July 4ths- could happen again, I guess.
And last night's fireworks went off fine. The spokesman was quoted as saying that they prefer clouds at about the 1500 foot level, (which is what we had) that it makes the sky darker so the bursts are brighter, and also because a cloud cover holds the blasts better so they are louder.
So I guess it is the best of all possible worlds. :)
