Soraya and Daphne up at the ring- it already looks like it is going to rain a lot!I shouldn't have said yesterday was a long day because today was even longer! I started the day with the 1.45 national class. Wolf was fantastic and jumped double clear and finished third. Soraya also went super but had A and B of the last double, I'm still very happy with her it was a very light rub. After about 10:00 it started to rain like nothing you have ever seen before. It was so bad Katie decided to scratch Quality and Redwhite so then I had to wait for the WEF.

There were 93 in the class and I was supposed to go 77th and 89th. Although the rain let up for a while, when I got on about 10 out the weather turned really bad. There were tornado warnings, the sky went completely black, it began to pour rain, and the thunder and lightning was quite scary! It was so dark at 4 in the afternoon that they had to turn on the lights. They ended up canceling the class because the weather was too bad and the footing wasn't holding up. It was not such a good class- a long time waiting around for nothing! Cylana was not impressed by the weather and was quite happy she didn't have to jump!

"Sunny" FloridaTomorrow I will show Soraya, Cylana, and Mika in the 1.40, Quality in the 1.35, and Redwhite in the 1.30. Although the weather is also meant to be really bad tomorrow so we'll see!

Later I had Valentine's dinner with my mom and dad. My dad had a necklace made for me because I lost my lucky one a while ago. It is beautiful white gold of the olympic rings. I hope it will bring me luck like the last one did!
