The sky is significantly clearer this morning. It is also significantly cooler. This weekend is forecast to be cooler yet. This should be perfect weather for the car show in Durham. Traditionally, this is a good car show. The show features military vehicles, motorcycles, classics, muscle cars, hot rods, and customs. It takes place in the park in Durham. Large trees provide good shade for this event.
