...And Then It Rained
Sometimes things don't go exactly as planned.  Just when it appeared that Lincolnton's parade and fireworks might avoid the thundershowers that had hit Denver around 4 PM and Hickory about 5, the rain came...and it continued for over an hour, diminishing the audience and the participation in the 2019 Independence Day parade.

Most of Thursday's Independence Day parades went just fine.  It was hot and humid, but the rain held off until the late afternoon and evening hours. 

It even appeared that maybe Lincolnton would avoid the predicted scattered showers--we didn't.  It rained for over an hour, sometimes hard, and the rain certainly diminished the crowd that would normally have watched the parade and also kept some who would have participated from showing up.  

The parade did go on as scheduled, even though it was still raining--just not quite as hard as it had been earlier.  We apologize that we didn't get as many photos as we would have liked--the camera got wet (to say nothing of the reporter who was soaked head to toe).  

Still, we celebrated America's birthday--and with all the arguments and lack of civility that are currently present, it was nice to see everyone joining together in celebration of our country instead of dwelling on the issues that often divide us.  

Martin Oakes supplied us with a video of the Westport parade held Thursday morning.  You can see it on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1216484348512468
