The story at Hobbs this year was the weather, obviously. I knew that the CD's job would be challenging, but when I accepted it a couple weeks ago, I thought to myself, "At least I won't have to worry about the weather."

We had an ordinary low pressure system, followed by a tropical storm, followed by unforecastable severe thunderstorms. All this in just 10 days.

But that's the nature of our manic-depressive sport. We never get tired of it because the highs always outnumber the lows. Wait till next year!

Despite the weather, I had a great time at this contest. I met a lot of friendly and helpful people, both inside and outside our event.

I will go back East now, with fond memories of my vacation in the desert southwest.
