Better bring rain gear

Originally uploaded by Iron Bieso
Last year, the weather was perfect for our Earth Day event. So far the forecast for Saturday is a mixed bag.

The National Weather Service report as a 9:30 a.m. Thursday says this for the Flandreau area:

Rain likely, mainly before 1pm. Cloudy, with a high near 47. Breezy, with a northeast wind between 15-20 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent.

So don't forget your poncho. Or rain hat. We will run the river rain or shine, lightning would be the only factor that would lead to cancellation.

There is some road construction between Flandreau and Egan but our main N-S route should be open Saturday. But if you are coming up state highways be aware of possible detours.

And bring a poncho.
