Dream Cruise: Rain, Rain, Go Away

August 20, 2005

After a beautiful clear cool evening Friday, dawn broke Saturday in Royal Oak, epicenter of the Dream Cruise, with overcast skies. But two blocks off Woodward at 7 a.m., you could hear the straight pipes of the Cruisers already making the rounds and the whop-whop of a TV chopper overhead.

By 8:20, it began to drizzle. At 8:30 a tremendous thunder clap overhead the 12 Mile/Woodward area rattled the windows and agitated the dogs. By 9:20 there was a steady downpour and more cannon fire in the clouds.

Those who had "dinner" flies over their lawn chairs and tops for their roadsters would be okay. The rest -- well, it was get drenched or sit in your sedan with the windows up or call it a day and head back to Canada or Illinois or Pennsylvania or wherever.

Stay tuned as TCC brings you more from the Cruise - wet or dry - today and tomorrow.--Mike Davis
