The forecast called for thunderstorms and for some reason that kept people from riding their bicycles to Earth Day – go figure. Still, it’s nice to be remembered, and Ms. Nature must have approved, despite the big-old carbon footprint, because the weather, though breezy, was beautiful. Our volunteers outnumbered our customers, but we were conveniently located next to the Aveda beauty school and at least one volunteer availed herself of the opportunity to get a salon-quality cut for only $10. Thanks to all of our great volunteers: Anna McCambridge, Andrew Harrell, John Randle, Keri Caffrey, Darlyn Kuhn, and Diana Steele. Big ups to our new friend, diabetes warrior Cesar Cesareo, of the Tour de Cure, for loaning us bike racks that met Orlando Parks & Rec requirements prohibiting sprinkler-killing stakes. Special mention, as well, to Andrew, who went above and beyond to pick up the bike racks and drop them off. The weather held until about 5 p.m., when we saw the big green blob on the weather radar and packed it in. We were all home, high and dry, when the weather hit.
