Looked at radar, and yes, rain is predicted too close to start of clean up. It will be wet and slippery. I am going ahead and canceling. If area to clean was not as rocky I might consider going on with it. It is rocky and I'm afraid will be too wet to walk in.

Please be advised: canceling clean up.

Thanks, Jennifer V. Hopefully it will be possible for you to come at some other date. Stay safe.

Hi, Jennifer. Thank you for your post. I will be there, and if it's not possible to do because it is raining or just too wet to be walking around the creek, I will just arrange for another day. I'm not sure I can cancel close to the start time and have everyone know it. I hope if it is raining, volunteers will decide it's not a good idea and not come. I can't reschedule for tomorrow, though. Does this make sense?

Hello fellow cleaner uppers.... was wondering if this is still happening as of this morn? I see another wave of green on radar right at 12:30. I certainty don’t mind getting a little wet, but was just wondering......
