Just talked to my dad at the Talladega Track. He wanted a weather update so I am watching the area for him just to the west. Mike V if you can help keep an eye out with me on this. I used to work there with him during my vacations so I became the weather Goob. Email me if you can help, I can get you his number at the track in case they get something tomorrow.

Rick, do you mean Mike W? Anyway, It looks like just a good bit of rain. There is a chance something might re-fire this afternoon in East Alabama, especially if the sun comes out. We had about 3/4" of rain here.
