Irene: 1; Us: 0

When I woke up this morning it was actually pleasant outside.  It wasn't raining at that point, and the wind was quiet.  The website didn't say the trial was cancelled, so I packed Jonah into the car even though I thought it might be crazy.  We've been officially advised by the police not to leave home because of the hurricane, but it hasn't reached us yet so I thought maybe we could get a round or so in before it hit.

About 5 minutes away from home, it started pouring.  A gust of wind moved the car across the road.  I said to myself, "Well, I'll drive to the next turn and if it hasn't stopped I'll turn around."  About a minute later a small branch broke off its tree and landed right in front of it.  There was no damage, but it was enough for me to know that we wouldn't have fun playing agility in this weather, so I turned around and now we're safe and dry back inside the house.  It's too bad, but we'll get over it.  Next weekend we get to try USDAA again!

  1. They actually did cancel the Sunday trial late Saturday afternoon so it's a good thing you didn't end up coming. You are lucky you left when you did. By the time Snooker started it was steadily raining, but a few diehards stayed to the bitter end.
