I was looking for pictures on a stretch of the Grand behind Preston High School on wet, rainy Saturday. The weather networks were right on this one. I had heard as early as Monday that precipitation was predicted for the 20th and the prognosticators were bang on.
I was working on a picture on the banks of the river pretty close to where the Speed River joins the Grand for the journey south to Lake Erie. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed something in the river and soon a couple in a canoe came around a bend towards me. I took some pictures as the wind caught their rain gear. I could definitely relate having headed out to my first assignment without adequate rain gear. I hope the rest of their trip wasn't too soaked.
