Wouldn't surprise me - the power is out in pockets all over the place. I live down the road a bit and our lights just went out for a bit. Seems like it always pours at least one night.

oh man, that's too bad. I have been watching the line of storms all day expecting something here. Most of it is slipping northwest of us.

Oh no! This is so unfortunate, but not surprising for PA and DAD this time of year! About 3 weeks ago, someone had said it would rain for DAD. So, I checked the forecast, and it said all clear. It is no surprise that it ended up raining. Been there many times when it rained! We were going to fly out for DAD, but unfortunately we couldn't. Very sad that I'm not there. Hopefully it will dry out quickly and the footing will recover!

It poured when I went two years ago. The footing was sloppy but it did not seem slippery at all. The horses seemed confident on it. The electricity being out could certainly put a damper on things though! Hope things dry out for them!!!

I was there braiding today for people that actually showed in hand today (They are way tougher than I am)- I believe they postponed all the test for today.

I just heard from our rider who showed in the CDI PSG this morning. The Dixon Oval is basically under water, there is no area in the ring that is not wet. That said, it is apprently not slippery, just splashy.

Any scores from the CDI would be greatly appreciated.

ToN Farm, I know!! I am dying not knowing what is going on. I am sad there is not live scoring like so many others venues now. She didn't have a score yet but did say Ceasar Para was in the lead with a 69..%
