 The 2013 Draft Horse Classic was this weekend. Lil Mama and I have been looking forward to it all year. Jr is finally old enough to enjoy himself and sit in the bleachers for the Best Horse Show on the West Coast, (at least as far as we are concerned).

It has been very warm here- just the way we like it. The height of our Indian Summer. Sometimes at this time of year our temperatures have soared to  100 degrees. We have absolutely melted during the day! We seek beer and shade and not necessarily in that order.

Three days ago the Weatherman says,"Some chance of rain."
We say- 'Pfffttt!"

Two days ago the Weather man says "30% chance of rain."

We say," It won't rain! It's September for Heaven Sakes!"

We pack. We do not pack rain gear. We do not pack jackets.


It rained.

And rained...


We waited for it to stop.

It did not stop.
We bought jackets.
We bought Hot Chocolate.
We waited some more.

Finally when the arena was deemed flooded Horse Show was cancelled due to rain.

I did manage to take a few snaps- enough to document the day.

30% can ruin a day for sure but I am 100 % sure that next year will be much better!
