WC weather this weekend?
« on: July 15, 2015, 08:32:15 am »
How God-awful hot would Washington Column be this weekend? I see forecasts anywhere from 72-90 degrees and I know it sits in the sun all day.

Am I gunna die (from heatstroke, that is)?

I think it'll be good. Of course warm in the morning but the breeze usually kicks up good, and it really hasn't been that hot lately.

If you're bringing a tarp because of the chance for afternoon thunderstorms you can use it to set up a nice shade on Dinner because there is a big tree there.

Woot!

If you are on the right side it goes in the shade by early afternoon.

Just bring a gallon of water per person per day and maybe a half gallon each extra.
