We've had some seriously weird weather here in Pleasantville. Normally, the 4th of July is hot as Hades with a humidity level that rivals the tropics. No amount of de-frizzer is going to save your 'do.
The weekend was looking unbelievably good - 80-some degrees all weekend with a good chance of rain Saturday morning. I swore it was an April Fool's joke, but the applicable grace period for that expired at midnight on April 2nd.
For once, the weather guys were right. It rained (a lot) Saturday morning, but went to mostly cloudy for the afternoon & evening with a few sprinkles here and there. The temperature was awesome, but we ended up with the standard level of humidity - I know Hubby had to change his shirt once because I was soaked with sweat just from being outside.
We headed over to the block party around six-ish and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. All the neighbors had contributed with food of some sort (what's a party without too much food) plus cash for a band and the BIG fireworks.
The kids got to play with water balloons.
And ate sugary food (heaven forbid they put something healthy, like a hot dog, in their mouths).
We partied with the band right up to fireworks time.
Like I said, we all chipped in for the big stuff. It was a good show.
I didn't time it, but it was at least half an hour.
Then, the party was over. The monsoon had arrived.
Oh well, what's an Island Block Party without a little rain (we had rain for the block party last year too)?
1. The humidity didn't hamper our enthusiasm.
2. The rain came right after the fireworks.
