Do we know what the current weather forecast for the Richmond parade is right now? I am watching this closely myself and if it is going to be cold and rainy for this parade also, I will be cancelling coming down. I can not afford nor do I have the desire to do another "Death March" parade again and risk getting as sick as I did the last time we did this parade in those conditions. It is just not worth it to me. I am moving to tentative right now until I know for sure what the weather conditions are going to be like that morning.

It is still a 50% chance with anything happening happening in the early morning to clear up by mid morning to early mid day.

If you punch in 23220 as the zip code into Weather.com you will get this information.

I was planning on bringing a 10x10 tarp to set up for us to stand under while we were waiting so that we weren't standing in the rain before the march. As for marching, I cant do anything about that, but from the weather reports I have been hearing it is not supposed to be anything like what it was in 2009.

EDIT:


It appears that it will all be gone by step off on Saturday morning

*sigh* Well, the precipitation forecast is a little worse from earlier today. Unfortunately, rain really isn't a good thing with the Aayla paint even if it is just sprinkling. Also my foot is still aching quite a bit (although the swelling has improved) so it's probably best that I don't stress it at this point. In fact my physical therapist concurred this evening that I probably should get an MRI. I feel like Bantha poo-doo for pulling out at the last moment and my husband is actually very disappointed about not going (we both had a lot of fun last year), but considering all the factors we really can't afford to pay for a hotel room when I can't be sure that I can march with you guys. Sorry! Crying or Very sad

Now watch, it'll be bone dry come step off time! Rolling Eyes

Completely understandable. It's a shame you all live so far away.
It was great seeing Brian in the Airborne armor and yourself in the Endor Leia at the T4T event. Take care of your foot. We will have you doing backflips next year. Smile

LOL! That'd be a sight! Yeah, and I really, really did not want to give up hope on this because it actually took quite a bit of finagling at work to get this weekend free. All that for naught! Confused

We'll miss you guys!

The last weather report I saw for Richmond had rain in the 9 o'clock hour, then cloudy thereafter. We'll see how it changes between now and Saturday morning. It's gonna be cold though..."feels like" in the low to mid 30's. brrrrrrr Wink Cold will be ok as long as it's not raining.

It was looking worse for a bit, but new update still looks good...90% chance of rain at 4 am, then 60% at 7 am, and down to 30% at 10 am start....and rapidly clearing to 0%y 11 am and on...yay! I think it'll turn ok at the present course. This report was at 1:20 am, Friday.

It takes several of us to step in as the Freedom Base weathermen since Bill has shirked his traditional duty Mr. Green

Can I get everyone to give me a confirmation by clicking on the CONFIRMATION button at the top of the thread to let me know if they are able to attend or not.

Here is the weather report for tomorrow as of 7:30 this morning


Here are the instructions for tomorrow as posted on the previous page as well.
WE ARE DIVISION 4

Here is the location of where we are meeting on the morning of the 7th. They have updated it for this year with the new Redskins facility and such.:

http://richmondparade.com/webfm_send/121

If you look at where it says DIVISION 4 along Leigh Street in the back, that is where we are mustering.
If you have a parking pass, which if you are coming to the dinner tonight, you can pick up from me, you can park in the OVERFLOW PARKING or DMV V LOTS
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE AT THE MUSTER POINT NO LATER THAT 8:30-8:45

WE STEP OFF AT 10....

If you are going to the shuttle lot, here is that info and MAKE SURE TO GIVE YOURSELF AT LEAST 30 MINUTES TO GET TO THE MUSTER POINT FROM THE SHUTTLE
Quote:
"You MUST arrive at the set-up area at DMV and the Science Museum NO LATER than 8:30am "

"You must be in the Line Up area and checked in with your Division Captain by 9:00am
Roll Call will be at 9:30am. Any Units not in line will not be allowed to participate."


Here is parking info.

There is a shuttle lot which is listed below that will take you to the muster point at the Science Museum. This lot is about 3 blocks down on 7th Street past the Coliseum where the parade ends.
Here is the info about the lot:
There is no physical address for the parking lot.
It is typically a GRTC lot and lot for VCU called Lot I
VCU LOT I
and it is where the shuttle will pick up.

It is literally right across 95S on 7th Street. You can get to it by taking the 3rd street exit off of 95 South and turning LEFT on Jackson, and then another LEFT on 7th Street. Go across 95 South and the lot is on your left.


It is also
Stop ID: 3032
GRTC Transit System http://www.ridegrtc.com

7th + Parking Lot (I Lot)
Richmond, VA 23219


or you can plug this into the Hyperdrive Navigator:
992 N 7th St
Richmond, VA 23219

------------------------------
As far as the dinner the night before I am still open to suggestions but O'Charleys midtown is still fine with me as it is our old standby:
6291 W. Broad Street
Richmond, VA 23230-2204
(804) 673-8233

If you are coming in from out of town or are in town and want to join us feel free to mosey in and grab a brew with us. We will probably be there around 7:30ish.
