  • Ok. I give up! Why must my cook-outs always get rained out?!

    Allright, on Labor Day, I was planning a pool party with steaks, brats, plenty of girlies in bikini's and the like. Well it got rained out. So we all postponed it for today (Sunday). Well it was supposed to be at 5, but now that it's 4:15, it just now decided to start pouring rain!!! Right after I had finished making all the preparations. That's twice that I've wasted a ton of money and effort within a week. Next time I have a cook-out, I'm not saying a word so I don't jinx it. Does this ever happen to any of ya'll? Time and time again? I'd say this is really like the 10th time this summer this has happened!

    I've been there and done that... funny how things sometimes conspire against you (us).

    On a different note we haven't seen rain for almost two weeks now in the Philadelphia, PA area.

            Lol.

            Look at the weather forecasts, but don't just rely on the summary at the end. If you see rain clouds on the forecast headed towards your area, it's always a safe bet that it might rain in the near future. So plan for a time after those clouds have passed your area. Besides, jinxes aren't real. ;)

              It was a joke.

              I apologize.

                Its ok. I knew it was. I was just messin' around. Ends up that most everyone came anyway, we partied at my apartment with a girl to guy ratio of 2:1, the rain became a drizzle, and by 8 it cleared up, so I ended up grilling my steaks, everyone got drunk, and I ended up with 4 phone numbers AND someone's unmentionables the next morning. ;)

                Yup, I guess I spoke too soon, because the day/night turned out fantastic in the end.
