Birthday Bash Flooded Out

If you are local to me, then you know what I'm talking about, but here's the background!

The radio station that we usually listen to has an annual free concert. Dan & I went one time before we had kids, but haven't since. The last few years, it has been both Saturday and Sunday. We decided that we would like to go on Sunday this year. We stood in line for the free tickets (which are required for entry) in the rain for about ½ an hour. The day before the concert, it rained and the river started flooding. Then the town upriver opened the flood gates to relieve the pressure on the dam. This caused more flooding! The DJ's were telling people all day to move their cars from certain areas and then they called off the rest of the day about 4 hours early. Then they cancelled the Sunday line-up. So much for being able to go, but we're thankful we aren't one of the thousand cars still stuck in the flood water!
