Well the weather forecasts for Saturday, August 13, 2016 FINALLY came to pass. The thunderstorms they promised, having held back for most of the day and evening, came rolling in with a vengeance around 8:15pm. So it was a good thing they postponed both the Alton fireworks (for ‘Old Home Week’) and ‘Annie and the Orphans‘.

It was quite the storm. One lightning and thunder burst was so sudden and so close that I actually thought that I had been HIT while seated at my PC! Yep, thought the whole PC and I had gone up in flames. There was a blinding flash. But when I looked around all the lights were on. I thought I was running on my UPS — but no. The power did not go down. Didn’t even flicker. But out of an abundance of caution I turned off my PC. Teischan who had gone to sleep just bit earlier was up and about woken by the crash. Braxton wasn’t happy either. He came upstairs to be with us. He is a baby at heart. 

About 15 minutes later, around 8:40 (or so) I turned back on my PC and noticed that MetroCast was down. I called. Got a recorded message that there was a service failure in my area.

Luckily the TDS Internet service I have ‘downstairs’ was fine. So I put Teischan to bed. Made myself a light dinner of fruit and yogurt and sat back and watched, with some dismay, India beating the West Indies, yet again, this being the 3rd 2016 Test. I then came up around 11:40 and Metrocast was up.

Can’t really complain. That was one heck of a storm. I was prepared for Metrocast to be down till Monday!

So I am thankful … THANKS Metrocast.

Official.

Per Kellie Troendle, CPRP, Alton’s Parks and Recreation Director, who sent me an e-mail BECAUSE she knows that so many of you rely on me for this type of information.

“Annie and the Orphans will not play at the Bandstand tonight, August 13 due to predicted rain.  Annie and the Orphans are re-scheduled to perform on Sunday, August 14 from 5-7pm at the Alton Bay Bandstand, weather permitting”.

 

NOTE 5pm (as opposed to customary 7pm) START.

Weather Permitting —
and it looks promising.

Suffice to say the weather for Saturday, August 13, 2016, in Alton, is going to be unsettled. See weather forecast below.

Kellie Troendle, CPRP, Alton’s Parks and Recreation Director, has informed me by e-mail that: “Old Home Week Fireworks are postponed due to predicted inclement weather. The rescheduled date is Saturday, August 27 with a rain date of Sunday, August 28. 9:00pm, Alton Bay”.

So fireworks pushed back 2-weeks. [This has happened before, e.g., 2014 July 4th fireworks.]

We will NOT know about “Annie and the Orphans” till around NOON tomorrow — yes, Saturday, August 13 (the day).

IF rescheduled it will most likely be the next day — i.e., Sunday, August 14, 2016.

I will, of course, keep you posted.

See above ….
