Getting ready for my first volunteer shift at the NC Music Factory and the sky opened up. Not only a ton of rain, but 10 minutes of hale as well. Must be Romney!
Picking up where I left off, I arrived at 4 pm to be part of Event Transportation, unloading and loading busses for the event. A light rain persisted until about 8:30, so we were all issued rain ponchos.
The logistics for the event were clearly planned for a non-rain scenario, and many of the Media who were attending the party were a bit miffed to have to walk through the light rain.
As with any event, the departure of the guests was not as well spaced as the arrival. At one point we had over 400 people standing around and waiting for a ride, and no busses. Once a group of busses arrived, it was near pandamonium controlling everyone trying to rush to get on. After about 45 minutes, we were able to get everyone away, and surprisingly without serious trouble.
