    PS - the moon showed up late, about 30 minutes after our hike ended.

    Sorry we missed anyone who showed up late. I didn't start the pre-hike talk until 7:50 and we started walking about 7:55. Once we started, my focus is on the hike. Sorry I didn't respond to any texts or calls.

    The hike for this evening is ON. There is a 0% chance of precipitation up until Midnight. We should be done by 10:00 PM, so we should be safe.

    Bring a flashlight, and maybe an umbrella, if you don't trust the weather man.

    See you at 7:45 PM.

    Cumulus clouds already giving sprinkles on my way home, but I can't read the clouds well enough to tell. They kind of look like short rain clouds...

    There is a 40% chance of precipitation tomorrow evening with scattered thunderstorms. If it is too miserable (e.g. steady rain) or too dangerous (e.g. lightning, strong winds), the hike will be canceled. I plan to make that determination around 6:30 PM on Monday. A message will be posted to Meet-Up as that decision.

    Let's hope for the best; that the rains hold off and that we'll have some clear skies for full-moon viewing.

      Hmmm, is there ever a rain or shine group? Walking in the rain would be kind of relaxing.
