Jersey Shore Fact of the Day 10: Shore Weather is Unpredictable

All week, the weather forecast for Saturday has been rain, rain and more rain. Yesterday's email update about the Asbury Park Half Marathon said the same thing: rain. And wind - wind that might push sand onto the course. Obstacle course. Fun!

But that forecast might be changing, to rain in the afternoon. That would be awesome.

For a lot of reasons, I had to pack for this race last night. I'm the kind of person who went to Italy for five days with just a carry on, but my duffel for the weekend is overstuffed. Why? Because I had to pack for every possible scenario: rain, wind, sun, and maybe even heat. That wind can turn, the sun could come out, or clouds blow over. You never know. Heck, it was supposed to SNOW for the Ocean Drive 10 miler, and I finished the race in sunshine.

Do you have a fun change of weather story to tell? Drop it in the comments.

You know what they say about the weather in Boston. "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute." Cold here today after mid 60s yesterday. Brrrrrr.
