Now there's another question. It rained 1.7 inches this morning before I rose at 10. What happened to the parade?
UPDATE: My answer is in this story:
The memorial began Monday morning, through the heavy morning downpour, as residents marched across the Mississippi River Bridge from Vidalia.
Vidalia mayor Hyram Copeland said many of the marchers told him, "regardless of how hard it rains, it will not dampen our spirit."
