Into every life a little rain must fall

Anna took Daniel and James to our Cub Pack meeting this evening. They had a great time playing with the other boys, especially Daniel. I cooked hot dogs. One dad asked if I always cooked for Scout meetings (he was at the Winter Rendezvous). No, I replied, but Jason was a bit distracted, and I was hungry, so I got cooking.

The Pack meeting was cut a bit short by the weather. The cookout was great, but not much fun and games followed the food. A big ol' storm came pounding in, and people left fairly early. The last holdouts, who were waiting on the rain to slack off, left when they got word of a tornado on the ground near Worthington.

A night to remember, as they say.
