It's 3pm now, looks like one more band of rain will be coming in to our area 4 or 5 hours from now, and then it could be nice weather for the rest of the weekend. As long as nothing new develops behind what's already out there we should be good. Fingers crossed!

The rain arrived much faster than I expected, in only 2 hours, at 5pm. It looks like the band of rain has thinned out considerable, could still make for a wet kickoff party at the Yankee Clipper, at least at first... Get there early for "dry" seating, if any available. It is a pool deck, so there's not much cover except possibly on the balconies around the pool. Am still optimistic that weather will improve after this evening.

10:51 AM Update.... The party at the Mai Kai was great last night. I got there a little early to get a pupu platter before the crowds. A rum barrel and Jet Pilot got the night off to a great start. The weather was a little scary with the Tropical Storm, but it cleared up and the weather is great.

The party must have been successful because the bazaar isn't open yet..apparently some of the vendors had a really good time last night.

Yes, I think the party was very successful last night. So much so that I took advantage of everyone and, between the Mai Kai party and the 1am mermaid swim, I went on a search for the hidden Deadhead bottles. I found the bottle with the key and will bring it to the Deadhead team later. At one point security approached me and asked if I "needed help finding something." I simply replied, "No thanks, I'm fine," and then walked off leaving them scratching their heads while I continued to search for the hidden Deadhead booty. It was a VERY fun night!
