It rained earlier. It was calling for rain all day. It looked like rain. It's a wonder anyone came out at all as I'm sure everyone thought it was going to be canceled.

Traveling any distance at all is expensive today. Not just fuel but you can hardly get one meal at McD's for $10! Then there are tickets and ancillary costs at the track. If it's an overnight trip, more $$$$ Getting rained out after making that investment is a whole lot harder today than it was "back in the day."

Then of course, weather prediction is a lot more reliable today to! ...well except for the guy who said it was gonna rain in Perris Saturday.
