[edit] Weather

Per, we're in for rain all weekend, clearing up Monday. If we want to do outside activities on any of these days, they will probably be rained out. Dress appropriately, of course. Temperatures are about 70F (~16C) during the sunny days and lows will be in the low 40F (5C), for those night owls. Most of us are coming from cold climates and will be welcoming these conditions, but keep them in mind.
