It probably cut down on the number of spectators, and on how long everyone hung around (for example, we enjoyed a late supper at Franco's across the street and were the only customers in there). But the house was full and the run out went splendidly.
Saturday was excellent, with no rain all morning and afternoon, till something came through while we were enjoying the afternoon double feature. But everything was great. We were happily Blobbed out by then and opted to hit the road for the three-hour drive home.
But what weather. And traffic, which sucked up an additional TWO HOURS on the NJ turnpike Friday afternoon. We got there just in time to relax to the last half hour of the entertainment before the run out. Then, heading back, the thunderstorm and deluge over the far eastern PA turnpike and NJ extension were what I might call history making in the annals of rainy driving adventures.
