I just looked at forecast - now calling for 60% thunderstorms for tomorrow, and 40% thunderstorms for Sunday - is there any type of alternate/indoor plan, pending all day rain? Or should I just bring rain coats haha

There are plans in place to deal with inclement weather for some events.
Obviously the road trip up Mount Washington can't be held indoors, but other things can be re-located.

From down hear in NC I did a little weather check for you guys: Yep, raining in Mass, but that is pretty localized and does not extend into ME. Looks like a front is pushing through ME from the NW and you guys should have clear weather for the rest of the day. I'm a pure amateur at this, so take it for what it's worth!! Wish I was up there...

Well it ended up raining every single day, but it didn't really impact events very much... Mother Nature cooperated as much as possible and we didn't all get drenched or have to pull the back-up plans out (move everything inside).
