    I have a fear boner...I need 80+ for the weekend.

    What's the opposite of a rain dance? Can we all do this on tiny chat this week?

    It'll be 49 (if it gets that low) at the coldest time of night, which is around 4-5 am when most people (even the ones on drugs) will be in the sleeping bags getting their 3 hours of sleep for the night. So bring one warm thing for the rest of the night, like a hoodie, and you'll be fine. The weather is gonna be dope IMO

    Hear, hear! Just no crazy winds, please. Have had quite enough of those at Sasquatch, although sometimes they make for some pretty cool impromptu shit while stages are closed so we don't die. Like Michael Franti serenading us with just his acoustic guitar while perched atop a chainlink fence. I don't even particularly like Spearhead but that was fun.

    I wonder if they are trying to switch up set times to avoid weather problems with some of the more elaborate stage set ups, which explains why they are so late.

    There are 2 fronts back to back

    It'll be the 30mph winds all weekend...Fuck! - night time is gonna be the right time for a bandana and goggles

    last night there were gusts of 50mph

    strange thing is during the day it'll be FANTASTIC weather...it's around 3pm where the wind will start - and it won't slow down. It's like a snowball going down a mountain.

    drove out to the polo grounds - was windy at 7pm, by 9pm they stopped all practicing and shut it down (due to wind) and by 10pm it was tough to see 5 yards ahead of you.

    I hope they pull the Black Keys up to 7pm, because at 11pm there won't be a set.

    I drive by the polo field everyday on my way to work.

    Right as I was passing the fields, a few sprinkles dropped on my windshield. A sign of things to come?

    Also, this:

    The National Weather Service has issued a high wind advisory for the desert, with windy conditions expected through Saturday.

    The NWS says that winds gusting up to 50 miles per hour are expected mostly in the afternoon and evenings, beginning today.

    This front also brings the chance of light rain to the desert, with up to a tenth of an inch predicted for the low deserts.

    A second weather front, with stronger winds, should hit the desert late Thursday.

    Drivers along Interstate 10 are advised to be aware of blowing sand, and areas of limited visibility during these wind gusts.

    Meaning Thursday Night is gonna be BAD - REAL - BAD

    Prob 40-60mph wind - have a fucking blast trying to put up your tent in that mess....ugh

    Plan accordingly

    Yeah, that might be what ends up happening. I'm getting there early Thursday so I'm hoping to at least get the tent set up... maybe if I use a LOT of stakes, it'll stay put. Stakes is high.
