  • Blame me if it rains at Carlisle

    Because I hope to be bringing my convertible.

    Of course, it always rains at Carlisle.

      You can see it in person. I have cars available, the black one has fresh oil.

            This is from 2016. But we'll be cool here in 2018.

                Showers and T-storms EVERY ^&$^&*(^&*&%# day !! Weather gods are pissed 'cause JP ain't coming !!!

                UPDATE: We just can not justify coming up there to spend 3-4 days in the rain. We just canceled our hotel reservation at the Red Roof Inn for Thurs - Fri - Sat . If there is a change in the weather, we MIGHT be able to run up one day to see everyone.

                  Bud!! I'll be hoping for that change in the weather.

                  So far, I still have every intention of being there.

                      I can't believe you guys are cancelling out because of a few bad weather forecasts. It always rains a bit at Carlisle. It's just a chance of rain not rain all day.

                            Blame me if it DIDN'T rain there as I canceled.....of course things usually go the opposite as I decide.

                              OK Bud, we'll give you some credit for the great weather, but since I was willing to take the blame for the rain, I should get some credit too.
                              It was beautiful Friday and Saturday, it did rain late Saturday night and Sunday morning, but it was great weather for the show!
                              Never trust weather forecasts for Carlisle.

                              It poured on my drive home which was a perfect test for the ragtop, and it didn't leak a drop. It did leak a bit by the doors overnight, but not a bit while driving in a heavy driving rain where I had to slow down to 35 mph at some times.

                              Here's a screenshot of the radar Saturday, this big storm didn't move all day, and Carlisle is in the clear circled area where the 2 expressways cross in the middle.
