What a nice little change of weather we had last evening. The strong winds out of the north usually cause problems for us since everything here is geared for winds from the south, not the north. We only had one plant blow over. No big deal. And the rain didn't have the same smell as a tropical rain, the petrichor was different, less aromatic. But the coolness it brought sure made for good snuggling weather.

Before the rain there was a lovely musical event as part of the Sailfest. Excellent music that certainly didn't bother us in the least because the volume (including for any subwoofers) wasn't excessive. Amazing the difference a good sound tech makes.

OMG- Rob you weren't listening from the same spot I was. The music was loud and as close to terrible as I can tolerate.
It was too loud for me to enter the venue. From several 100 feet away at least it wasn't an assault.
The canned hip hop music at the food court is actually delicious, as is the California roll

Okay, well The Beach Boys stuff has never been my favorite, but the Stones, Creedence, and the Ike & Tina stuff were fun to listen to from our home. It didn't seem very loud to us like the electric music we usually hear coming from that direction. But we didn't go to the event itself. Maybe the wind was blowing the volume away from us. When it started raining people started scrambling for taxis and shelter. An unfortunately abrupt end to their outdoor event.

Well you have a point- the lead singer had a raunchy voice better suited for Stones and the Turners which I unfortunately didn't hear because their Beatles and BeachBoys were so badly botched I had to go drown myself in sushi!
