      I know it's a little too far to judge but let's hope for no rain.

      What I've seen so far there is rain Saturday night and early Sunday morning.


      It would not be Dustoff without some rain.

      This is very true Jeff. Looks like a decent day after a possible shower in the am. Looks like most of the day should be fine.

      and they're saying a ton of wind too, which means people are going to need their EZ-Ups really tied down properly.

      I think it's pretty obvious that it's a crapshoot at this point.

      I'm backing that up. Channel 5 up here in Boston said the same thing. All the crap stuff will happen Saturday night and laying off by 8/9am.

      Ok, so looking at the forecast I am pretty damn happy. Only thing I see is the wind being a factor. Please bring something to weigh down your EZ Ups. We have tires around the property that we are allowed to use. You are on your own to collect these for use. I would bring something just in case tires are all spoken for.

      Thanks for helping out everyone. See you tomorrow AM.

      not gonna bother bringing an EZ Up due to the wind
      don't want to be responsible if it damages someone's car... I'll bring an umbrella

      but I'm excited about the weather. all my sources say the same as yours... rain tapering off by around 8am

      The wind is actually dying down around here. So I wonder if its going to be that bad tomorrow. We'll see in the AM I guess.

      We have tires around the track that you can use to hold your EZ Up in place. It's what we usually use for ours. Up to you.

      Rain is already starting to let up down here at the CT/RI border, most of the heavy part of the storm moved through around 2-3 am...we'll just have to deal with the wind.

      See everyone in a few hours.

      Just stopped in Newport. Tings are looking up already. Starting to get brighter out there. Still windy as hell though, lol. TV station is saying before 8am we should have no rain at all and starting to clear out.
