Just a quick weather report for those who are going to the Elfsea event from
one who lives a mere few miles from the site.  It is supposed to rain all
weekend and be on the nippy side for this time of year.  Just a quick heads

Athaulf, if you are going to the Elfsea event let me know, I've got some
staves of rattan for you.
