Still Waiting...

This is day 6 stalled in Grrreen County! Today's culprits are light rain and winds out of the east-northeast at 10-15 mph. But stay with us! Tomorrow looks promising. The forecast is for winds at only 3 mph and out of the northeast at 7am. Cross your fingers in hopes that the team can move south and cross into Illinois.
