Yesterday was a day of parades in the Chicago area. Typically the parades occur between 10:00am and 12:00pm. Yesterday during those times a fairly heavy downpour roared through the area. Some parades got very wet while others were canceled because of lighting strikes.
In both cases months of planning, hours of preparation and effort were for naught. Sometimes you do everything right and it rains or in this case, it storms. What to do?
Dry yourself off and go on to the next adventure. There will be another parade.
