Veterans Day Parade The rain that had been forecast earlier for yesterday did not arrive. This allowed the annual Veterans Day parade to take place as planned. While the sky was overcast and the day was cold and dreary, at least it was dry! It is unfortunate that the sunshine and warmth we are enjoying today was not available yesterday. Today promises to be a beautiful day.

Here are a few photographs from yesterday's Veterans Day parade. Click to enlarge.
