And so it begins…

… Another drum corps season has “officially” begun. And things get a bit cray-cray for cb.

Sure, we’ve been rehearsing this winter, but starting today the outdoor season starts. Under threat of severe weather– naturally.

Last night was a joy, because we had to prep the parking lots and fields where we will be marching tonight. With severe weather bearing down on us– naturally.

Seriously, last night a crew of about 8 of us tackled the field lining for three fields. In 25mph winds and with a line of severe weather racing in. And by “severe” I mean high winds, hail, and tornadoes.

Have you ever tried to hold 300 feet of tape measure steady in 25-30 mph winds? It sucks.

We worked from 6 – 8:15 pm and just finished before the lightning flashed and the rain started.

And so tonight we will be outdoors, and they are predicting more thunderstorms, so that’s good.

My next seven days shape up as follows:

– Wed. Rehearsal 6-10 pm
– Thurs. leadership meeting 6:30 – 8
– Fri. Off
– Sat. Camp from 8am – 6pm then band concert 7:30 pm to 9.
– Sun. Camp from 10-5.
– Mon. Concert band rehearsal 7-9
– Tues. another concert
– Wed. Drum Corps rehearsal 6-10

This is what I call “bring over-scheduled”. When this happens, I can’t get in my workouts, I lose my “recharge time” I get ultra cranky.

So be prepared for more snarky blog posts where I vent my spleen.

    Reading about your experience with crappy weather brings to mind why I skipped on little league. I recall, the beginning of April, cold, dark and wet. Not my favorite things when thrown together.

    So my baseball career, called on account of weather.

  5. You won’t convince me that you don’t LOVE it! 😉

    A schedule like that would upset the delicate scales of tv watching/falling asleep on the futon for me.
