It's raining sideways

I'm on feature-writing duty today, so I'm not at the launch this morning. But I hear the weather at the launch is just like it is here at the Hampton Inn about five miles away. It's raining sideways. The cable is out. The lights have flickered. A quick look at the forecast shows that it's going to rain hard throughout the day. Wouldn't be surprised if this one is called a wash. But in the event that it's not, best wishes to the folks on the water. It's just plain nasty out there.
