I picked a great day, forecasts show 60% rain chances for Saturday. Anything over 30% is usually a guarantee here.

Is the BHN Zone thing a covered area? I have a huge umbrella, but will be nice to get out of the weather a bit when there.

That was me. I was looking for the safari hat, and thankfully you had it with you. Thank you again for spending the time you did with me. Your voice and my ears both suffered with the Indy cars practicing, but I appreciated the time with you. Thank you. Victor

Keep the hat, or I will not find ya. I am heading down there within the next hour. I'll be the guy that looks like an extra from the set of Vikings, but wearing an Adidas button down baseball style shirt.

Today was a washout....I am on the left. We called it a day because it will likely be another hour or more before the rain passes. Those of you waiting for the rain to pass Indycar quals will begin at 5pm based on a tweet they just sent out.

I got to the gates around 12:30'ish, right when they were kicking everyone out. I was kind of disappointing, and left after a couple hours, not able to get in.

You didn't go back? They raced until late last night once the storms passed?

I couldn't, I had other plans for later in the day well across Hillsborough county. I hung out in the parking garage for about as long as I could wait it out, but I had to get out. I only planned for a couple hours to be out there and the storm screwed that all up.

The plus side of everything was, I finally figured out the problems with my printer while trying to print my tickets. Turns out, if the Windows printer preference are set to greyscale, it doesn't matter what you choose on the Chrome browser's Print page dialog box.
