Going For Two

What a week we’ve had!  Sunshine and warmth every day, which each day a little warmer than the last.

What made this Friday in particular so nice, was that the weather didn’t take a turn for the worst, like we’ve had lately.  Counting today, 3 out of the last 5 Fridays have had horrible weather for outdoor events: thunderstorms, lightning, wind, and bone-chilling dampness and cold.

Stormy and sometimes cold weather impacted high school football games 3 weeks in a row, in addition to impacting other outdoor events

There were unfortunate impacts on our typical Friday night events, with lightning and rain delays and cancellations for Friday night high school football, and the Rockford City Market was cancelled two weeks in a row because of thunderstorms and unpleasant cold and damp weather.  These, of course, are wise decisions to keep everyone safe, but they do put a damper on the last few nice Fridays before winter sets in. I think that’s why today’s “2-point conversion” (or 2-Friday conversion) felt a little extra nice- we had splendid weather for Friday night under the lights in a row.

Valid Saturday, Sep. 27 to Sunday, Sep. 28

Looking ahead, make sure you get outdoors and enjoy the gorgeous weather this weekend!  80’s, sunshine, and low humidity should add up for a beautiful weekend.  Enjoy!
