It was bound to happen sooner or later – in the years I have been planning events for the Ardsley Park Chatham Crescent Neighborhood Association, we have had ridiculously good luck with the weather. Other than a slightly wet Oyster Roast one year, we have never been rained out. Of course, that almost changed last night!
Our neighborhood National Night Out picnic was set to begin at 6pm, but at 5pm the rain was unbelievable. Torrential downpours, flooded streets, little hope of a successful party. But did we give up??? Well . . . almost. But amazingly by a little after 6 the rain had stopped, the flood waters receded, and neighbors started showing up at the park for hotdogs and fun. Not our best turn out by a long shot, but a fun party none the less!
