A soggy day for (almost) all

Today started out warm, even muggy. A new volunteer, Christine, joined me for the 6 – 9 a.m. shift, after which it started raining. Nancy and Toni arrived around 10:30 for a very long and soggy shift, and were joined by Frank from 1 to 5 p.m. I dropped by briefly just before 5, and left again once Chris and Marie arrived for the last shift of the day.

The day can be summed up as follows: Six of us spent at least some time in the rain watching Pringle, one person remained more or less dry (Christine escaped in time), and Pringle still hasn’t flow. But he did get soaked.

But golly, he’s close. By all accounts, he spent a significant portion of the day training for his big moment, and he’s looking strong and confident as he furiously flaps those wings and jumps onto the little walls on the side of the ledge.

Here are some adorable photos I digiscoped before the rain. Trust me, you’ll want to scroll down to the last one.
