Well, that was a great party! Standing room only inside and out. I received a lot of "regrets" during the day so wasn't sure how many would be there. It would have been insane had everyone showed up.
The skies opened right at the beginning, sending some slush down onto the deck for 1/2 hour. After that it was smooth sailing.
