Summer Streets #2: Wetter and Better?

streets_exercise.jpg
Car-free workouts on Cleveland Place will be back tomorrow, but what about the open-toed pumps?

The weather might add a new wrinkle to the second installment of Summer Streets: Forecasts call for a 40 percent chance of rain tomorrow. How might showers affect the day's events? Will the largely positive press from last week counteract any turnout-depressing effect? What sort of changes will be wrought by the presence of umbrellas? Will ped-bike courtesy rise to new heights now that people have some Summer Streets experience under their belts? How many car-free side streets will turn into stickball arenas?

I, for one, eagerly await the chance to find out answers to all these questions. Plan on coming out too? You can see what others are up to and organize activities through the Summer Streets group on the Livable Streets Network.
