Oh snap!. Rain the forecast!

Of all days to rain... I can't believe we have showers in the forecast for Saturday as of Mother's Day news. We have def had some wierd weather on SoCal the last few weeks, from overcast to super hot and sunny, back to overcast with rain. WTF?!

That seriously blows! But, it's California and it's Bfest, so the sun will find a way to shine!

This is so typical for Bimmerfest. In 12 years, at least 9 rain threatened (one of the reasons why we pushed the show back to May from April), and it never materialized... The Bimmer Gods always shine down on us no matter what the weather models say...

The meteorologists can't predict squat. Accuracy would improve if they had some guy with binoculars on the roof looking for rain

I did spend all of Saturday detailing the car, it's covered and being kept in a dust free environment. News said chance of rain Saturday evening. I bet the show will be rain free, it will only start to rain the last few miles as I approach my garage and then it will rain.
If it does rain at the show, beautiful girls in wet tees? I am just saying…

Just goes to show you that weatherman actually means whither or not man. It's all a crap shoot!

So it doesn't look like there's rain the forecast anymore but now we have major May Grey as San Diego has been under a thick marine layer all day so far. Hopefully, Pasadena doesn't get affected by the marine layer but it's pretty thick in SD right now.

I remember last year there was no rain in the ofrecast but it def sprinkled on a few areas on our way up. Just enough water to mess up all of our detailing work.

the NEWS this morning said a thick marine layer for the 14th. I hope not, but I'm bringing stuff to wipe down my detailed car.
