    Went that way with @NorthArlington101 and my meet but unfortunately for my team it was loss but at least he got a win for his team. It was a fun meet but the pool had a bunch of leaves in it and the starting area wouldn’t drain so there was nowhere to put your towels or anything. 

    I hear you. The pool we swam at was littered with leaves, but there’s not much to be done about it, I guess.

    Sorry to hear that the relays didn’t go your way, but I suppose losing an exciting meet is better than losing an unexciting meet! :lol:

    Ours came down to relays. One of theirs DQd and then we stole a 15-18 girls one which was the difference. Weren’t supposed to win the meet at all and somehow we did. I’m saying it was the weather that helped

    Definitely the weather.

    I just checked the NVSL site (stalker), and I think I know which meet was yours. Any meet that comes down to relays and ends like that would be awesome (if you win :lol:)!

    Hell of a great day for swim meets!  Hope all that had to do that had a good one. Beats 100° and melting sun

    The pool we swam at was really shaded, so it was pretty damn chilly!

    Our opponents were unfortunately dealing with a lot of COVID cases, so it ended up not being much of a contest. They were great hosts, though, so we all had a good time! A lot of our kids had uncomfortable swims, but they pushed though it, which is really all we could ask for!

    I got an A meet for swim Saturday morning  and another long course meet for swim Sunday so I don’t really know how to feel about this super nice weekend coming up. That said it will also be awesome for biking and mowing lawns. 

    Yeah...first A Meet of the season is going to be a little chilly!

    The heavy rain in the forecast for here looks like a bust. All too familiar look to the radar. Mesos look very meh for later today too.

    Going to have to do some watering today.

    It’s a rough existence out there in Stephens City.

    The drought is real.  Thoughts and prayers to them.


    I'm def not looking forward to our time trials in the rain buuuuuut I'll take that over 90+.  Mainly the hassle will be having to put up a lot of tents to try and keep most of us from getting drenched.  It won't matter to me.  I'll get soaked just from having to run around with time cards and all that.

    Hoping it’s just some showers on Saturday, but we’re still planning to put up canopies so the time cards can actually be written on and are legible.

    My main concern now is just the kids staying warm. I probably should t worry, but I’m a softie.

    @mattie g: the drought is delayed a few more days at least. Over 1” and pouring. Flash flood warning out.

    All of our thoughts and prayers paid off!

    0.20” here, but we didn’t need any more than that, so I’m good…

    Euro remains insistent that Saturday is a dud.  GFS clears out the rain early in the day.

    We have swim team time trials starting at 9:00 am on Saturday, so it looks like we’ll be swimming in the rain as long as there’s no thunder.

    Wouldn’t mind this thing being a dud since I’ve had over 2” of rain in the last two weeks, but I understand that others who are suffering from the drought would like some steady rains.

    Must be June.  @WxUSAF is trolling for the drought thread again.


    Things are looking rough there in Maryland right now:

    Dude…that’s an awesome story! I love the idea of letting the folks who worked hard all season to have a little fun at the end of it all.

    Our last B Meet is away, last A Meet is at home. We also have the Lollipop Meet a couple days before Divisionals. Might need to see if the folks want to stick around for afternoon drinks after that last A Meet. Now to coordinate with my concessions-lead wife!

    As for the part about the rise from lower to higher divisions, I can only imagine. It’s really too bad that the nature of summer swim seems to have been lost for you guys, but I love that you’re trying to recapture at least some of it.

     I’ve been really intrigued by a team near me that has gone from a perennial Division 11-12 team to Division 3 in just a few seasons. I dont think I’d want that for us because I’m sure a lot of that fun is lost, but I’d love at least grow our team to the point that we don’t have to worry a out filling lanes or having a relay for an age group. That’s kind of my goal over the next couple years. We’ll see if we can at least make some strides!

    Which is interesting...because LWX has taken a more measured tone with their updated afternoon forecast WRT severe...there was a lot less "slight" and "possibly" in there this morning.


    That's confusing. I think they mean that there's a slight chance early on, then 90% chance of rain later with a chance of storms.
