    I couldn't seem to ever quench my thirst last year until the sun went down...no matter how much water I was constantly drinking. I'm a pale white boy from Seattle who's family moved here from Scotland. What does that all mean? It means I swim in my fucking clothes if the temp goes well above 80. I for one would welcome a little rain with open arms if the tradeoff is a weekend of mostly tolerable temperatures. Sorry lizards, looks like the heat lamp won't be on high this weekend.

    Video of Owen Pallett getting rained off the stage at an outdoor festival. Awesome video, but raises my concern about the main and outdoor stage....

    Though YES, I know it will probably not rain anywhere near this much if it rains.

    The forecast is only calling for showers. It's not like we are going to get severe thunderstorms. It will be fine.

    Sometimes it makes the performance that much more awesome. (2:40 shows the rain pretty well.)

    This. Why are Californians so terrified of rain anyway?

    That's what I think. Anything between 80 and 100 is fine with me, but 70-ish with a 50/50 shot at rain? No thanks.

    If someone asked me what the absolute perfect coachella weather would be, this would be my answer.

    After 20 years of living in San Diego, I've learned that nowhere do people bitch about the weather more than where it's just about as close to absolutely perfect year round as you can get. I guess it's a SoCal thing.

    Personally, after having invested hundreds of dollars in the shade/mist/best sunscreen/50 SPF lip balm etc. I'm still happier than pig in shit about the forecast. Who gives a shit, when I'm about to have one of the best 4-day periods of my entire life? And then, I can put all that shit to use when it warms up for weekend 2.

    BTW... all you bitching about the weather for weekend 1 - lots of W2 peeps are looking to trade.

    On the bright side, This cooler weather means we can take a shit in the porto-potties mid-day without boiling.

    Far be it from me to call people pussies, but anyone complaining about the weather being in the 70s-80s is an unmitigated pussy.

    This. I spent $70 alone on sun screen fabric materials for my canopy, but I'd be even happier if the conditions didn't require me to have to use them.

    I'm generally against rain, but it did make for a rather epic close to the Arcade Fire set in Big Sur:

    I pictured a weatherman standing in front of a map saying this. Would be the greatest weatherman ever.

    Most weather reports I'm reading are predicting 50 mph wind gusts in the desert on Friday. Might be tough for the campers with canopies.

  27. #327

    Default Re: 2012 Weather Watch

    Rain would be nice, especially a desert rain storm. A 50/50 chance of rain in the desert usually means it might rain for 15 minutes. Maybe really hard, but you will be hard pressed finding persistant mud puddles on the Polo fields. The grass and air will dry it out real quick.

    Some people like it boiling, some cooler. The wind is a much harder sell. I hope we can all agree NOBODY is hoping for 50 mph gusts.

    Wind is worse than rain or cold - agree.

    But I also think that this "rain" could move earlier in the week as the weather report moved the rain from sunday to saturday to friday throughout last week. We just need it to push one more day!

    I would LOVE a 15 minute downpour on the polo fields mid-day any day. Especially if I was watching an act on the outdoor or mainstage. That woulda been great during DFA 1979 last year.

    Wind mixed with cold sweats is the worst. At least I'll know where the stages are this time.
