This was definitely one of the strangest meetings I've ever attended. Our trail chapter had a hike and work day scheduled this morning. The one remaining thing to do on the boardwalk for this season is get the rails attached, required because it's a raised structure. (Just low, edge rails.) So the guys were going to work on that, and some of us just went for a hike in the area. Then the president decided that we should have lunch and our annual meeting connected to the whole thing. So that was the plan.
I needed to leave home about 9:30 to get there on time. At 9:00 it began to rain, a cold steady rain. Oh, well, I needed to be at the meeting. So Maggie and I set off. The hike sort of turned into two groups of people walking where they wanted to for a while. The guys worked in the rain. By noon we were all soaked.
One couple brought a tarp and set it up, added tables and a camp stove- ready for lunch! And then the rain really started. It POURED. We all sat under the tarp and had a yummy lunch of hot dogs, beans and various salads. Then we tried to hear each other over the sound of the rain on the tarp (I'm serious), and hold a business meeting.
I had put Maggie in the car, because she was freezing. After we got home, I took a hot shower and put on my PJs. Spent the rest of the day on the computer.
