It's nice and dry here in Ohio. However, I would rather be putting up with rain at convention than working this week! :big grin:

With only 8 tents and 5 campers in the campground, there aren't enough folks to make a shrine.

Is the convention that small, or did most decide to stay in hotels?

most people are staying in hotels. The convention is small as well. I'd say there's more like 50 tents set up at the campground. We could still build a shrine if we wanted to. I dont think there's a fire ban. At least not after all this rain...

From what I'm seeing on the weather channel you aren't done with the rain yet! I wish I could have come but hubby said he wasn't camping and our budget couldn't stretch afford a motel/hotel . . . so instead I got scheduled to work Mon, Tues and Thurs this week . . . lots of my coworkers wanted off this week for "back to school" for their kids.

Yeah, the rain is kind of heavy. Which is great for the aquifer. We've been in a drought for so long. It's not so great for the camping. The temperatures have not been bad though. It's been cooler then it was in Indiana last year, and a lot cooler then it was in Alabama.

just got back from convention, well more like vedors row. I just needed to buy my boyfriend some bday presents for tomorrow, and what better place to do some shopping! Did get to see a few folks I know. I think I was there maybe 2 hours.

The weather is a lot cooler this week than last week.
