Is this rained out? It's drizzling now and looks like it's going to keep raining.

Hi All! A few details about the work day tomorrow.... Just because this even says "10-2" does not mean you have to come work for 4 full hours. In fact, last year, it was all done in just over one hour, and we even had to shovel/rake some actual dirt that was in the way then.

If you get hungry while there.... We've got bananas and oranges and cookies to give you all the energy you need to shovel. Then, when lunchtime rolls around we'll break out a sandwich bar. I did not get any GF bread, but I did get some GF cookies. We also have some water, but if you can bring some from home, that would be nice, too.
