- Check the weather. Pay attention to the percent chance of precipitation each day.
- Add those percentages. In our case: 30% Saturday + 40% Sunday + 30% Monday = 100%
- Multiply by three. From our formula, we now know that there is a 300% chance of thunderstorms over the weekend.
- Pack accordingly - and with a 300% chance of rain, bring your best attitude.
Abe was the one who bought the duck's back covers for our packs, the one who wouldn't negotiate leaving the tarp at home, and the one who told me "you need rain pants!" and came home with a child's pair that's still too long. And he was right.
