Jill’s report from yesterday (Wednesday) evening:

As you can see from the photos [at the end of yesterday’s post], Day One started out sunny and bright with a cool breeze — perfect for all the morning classes. Right after lunch, the clouds blew in, and for a couple of hours the skies kept threatening something. Just before 4:00 p.m.: lightening, thunder, and rain, and then more rain, and then more. Finally the show was stopped for the day.

Then, half an hour later, out came the sun again and all was well, except for everyone who got soaking wet.

There were some great turnouts today, especially all the single ponies — forty-two of them, it turns out.
