Sacramento and Sacramento Skaters (skating on water) from the I Street Bridge on June 8, 2000. Apparently we were rained out. I showed up at 7:01 p.m. I left at 7:13 p.m. No one else showed. I don't blame them. It rained during the day, and at 7:00 p.m. the ground still had many wet spots (10 - 15% wet spots). The ground had many twigs, leaves, branches, and more twigs on it. Humidity was about 75%. The sky was overcast with dark clouds. And, more rain was expected.

The Christmas decoration skate will be on December 23rd, Monday. Gordon, Director of the Skate Patrol, has agreed to lead the Christmas decoration skate. I hate to miss it, but I will be out of town visiting my parents until January 6th, Monday.
