What rain?

I walked over to the shop a few days ago and overheard this conversation......

Old Timer- What are you boys getting into today?
Husband- Well....I WAS going to mow hay this morning, but they are calling for rain on Friday and Saturday.
Old Timer- But the race is this week-end.
Husband- Okay...... (clearly not following)
Old Timer- Son, it hasn't rained on a race week-end but ONE time in the history of the Speedway!  Cut the hay, it AIN'T gonna rain.

We all had a good laugh, and thought nothing else of it until Friday.  That rain?  It never came.  Saturday?  The smallest drizzle you have ever seen.  I guess the old timer was right!

Funny how the old timer just knows, and the weathermen with all their gadgets still don't get it right.
