Good news. The Government has not shut down, at least for the next two weeks. While I can’t speak for the state of the Union as a whole, at least our program won’t be disrupted. We proceed as planned: meeting at the park Visitor’s Center on Friday Morning to board the bus for our tour of McLemore’s Cove.
I’m further informed that so far, rain is not in the forecast for next weekend, though apparently a general deluge hit the area this weekend.
I realize that without precipitation, the tours just won’t be the same, but as I told one participant who emailed me with this news earlier, we will just have to struggle through somehow.
See you on the battlefield. And don’t forget to bring your own lunch on Friday…
