The 24 Hour Countdown Update

Hello Folks,

It is 10:47 am on Friday as I write this post. There have been several calls already with regards to the weather situation and what to do if it rains tomorrow.

I have searched the internet for weather forecasts for tomorrow (Saturday) and this is what was discovered;
  1. Google Weather reports that there will be sun and cloud tomorrow (no rain) with a high of 17C
  2. The Weather Network reports that we will have sun with variable clouds in the morning with a high of 14C and cloudy with showers in the afternoon with a high of 17C
  3. CBC Weather reports that it will be mainly cloudy with a chance of showers in the afternoon and evening with a high of 17C
All of these forecasts sound pretty good. So, let's keep our fingers and toes crossed that they are accurate and perhaps say a prayer or two.

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS? Most people will put their sale items out in the morning even if it is sprinkling a bit. That is what we are going to do. If it is raining badly and appears as if it is not going to let up (like right now as this post is being written) then, I will make a commitment to you to have the signs put back up for Sunday. IF that happens, it will be posted on the blog and your street captains will be informed who will then inform you. Unfortunately, we only have 3 street captains. If anyone wants to volunteer, please call me at 416-230-5800 today. We have captains for Pepler, Chilton and Warland.

The good news is that all of our advertising promotes a Raindate of Sunday, June 3rd.

On another note, let me tell you about Susan Forint who is an Interior Designer with a fantastic blog! She lives her passion for design through searching Toronto for inspirational and affordable finds. She featured our garage sale last year on her blog and has just posted this morning about our sale again. Here is the link to her post. Pretty amazing really. Thank you Susan!
