There are 365 days in a year, unless it is a leap year, and it rains for more than 200 of those days in Washington. So, trying to nail a date for a show can be kind of tricky. Someway and somehow during the last 13 years, the Sittin' Pretti crew has found a way to outsmart Mother Nature and have good weather for the day of the show. This year's show was no different. Late Friday night, we watched the clouds roll in while we hung out at the hotel, caught up with old friends, and made new ones. Saturday morning was overcast, but it looked like any minute the sky was going to open up and pour buckets down and drown everybody. Thankfully, the rain stayed away and everybody had a great time.
