Not having a storm like last year would be very nice, that said the mud on most of the site wasn't too bad. Just a couple of swallow you whole bits around the entrance to the arena and to Midgard.

I don't mind a light rain overnight but don't want any during the day (unless Triptykon are playing and then its perfect).

The weather forecast now is.......
Thursday - Sunny spells, but overcast.
Friday - The odd shower in the morning but mostly fine.
Saturday - Same as Friday.
Sunday - A few showers, with sunny spells.
Not too bad. A shit-ton better than Downloads mudfest anyhow.

As long as my baldy head doesn't get burnt to a crisp I will happily go for some serious sunshine. My tasteless bush hat will be with me for the weekend - just in case!


Huh,huh,huh,huh tasteless bush!!!!!!

If it does end up like that, not looking forward to dealing with a wheelchair user, unless they prepare and put boards down for it
I went a way for some time, but I guess I should come back and annoy people due to attending this year

As it stands now, going by a few sites, looks like it's going to be mild, cloudy, with a few showers over the period. All subject to change within the next week though

I'm quite happy with that forecast

No risk of sunstroke no risk of getting trench foot from monsoon conditions!

Just as long as its not pissing it down on Thursday, when the tent goes up. Nothing like a wet tent to start the weekend of badly.
Im expecting a bit of rain, so it'll be what it will be. :yes:

I've read 3 different weather websites and they've varied between chucking it down and not a cloud in the sky.

I'll just wait a bit I think.

Best way. Though apparently it's going to be nice down that way for the next few days. Being in the middle, that could keep continuing, if the fronts stay rather calm

As long as the sun isn't beating down on my rapidly balding head I'll be very happy.

Seriously, you don't want sunburn on your scalp. The only alternative is suncream but then you'll look like Lisa when she got gum in her hair.

I love hats, but sometimes you take it off for a minute or forget to put it on.
