The good news is there are finally enough things going on to warrant a Weekend Event Guide. The bad news is, things are bleak right now on many fronts. I hope you’re doing OK.
I also hope the forecast is true and we get some rain at the start of next week. Fingers crossed.
In the meantime, conditions can change quickly so please use your best judgment before heading out and watch local media channels for air quality notices and evacuation orders.
