The weather on Saturday could not have been more perfect. When I went to pick up Sheila a little over a week ago in Arlington, Jeff had checked the ten day weather forecast on www.weather.com and Saturday was clear. Nine days out, however, that was no longer the case. Scattered thunderstorms plagued the weather forecast. We kept reminding ourselves that those were scattered thunderstorms. That could mean it would be nothing. Or nothing during the morning. And,as the day approached, the forecast and the skies cleared. Making way for a relatively cool, sunny, and at just the right times for perfect pictures, overcast day. The weather held until the trolley left the reception hall. Jeff and I literally closed the door of our car and the skies opened up. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day to set the scene for my sister's wedding. I feel truly blessed that not a drop fell from the sky until it was time for everyone to cool off from all that dancing.
