Soggy weather dampens Memorial Day festivities for some in the Delaware Valley

- “Today was kind of rainy and not the greatest,” said Nancy Dolan.

People certainly didn’t want to spend part of the holiday weekend under the really wet conditions that occurred Sunday.

“Instead of looking for shorts, we were looking for sweaters,” Mary Hohney stated.

Damp and chilly for the most part dampened efforts to take in the sights from the Jersey shore to historic and fun Penn’s Landing.

What happened in some neighborhoods was more than a nuisance for some local residents. Rich in Phoenixville sent a shot of his front yard.

“I love the sun, the pool. I love to grill hot dogs and hamburgers. Can’t do none of that. This weather,” said Toriana Poole.

Mary Hohney took her grandbabies for treats and back home.

“We can’t even go swimming. We can’t barbecue. We can’t do anything,” Hohney said.

“I mean, when you’re around family, it should be okay,” said Christina Washington.

Washington is taking precautions for the holiday, just to be certain.

“I’m not sure, I guess with a tent and the heat from the grill, we should be okay,” Washington said.

“Doesn’t matter what the weather is,” Ron Huffstickler stated.

Huffstickler is sticking to the spirit of Memorial Day.

“My holiday weekend is great. I was on the motorcycle yesterday and tomorrow I am going to do to honor a Navy SEAL who was killed in action,” Huffstickler said. He went on, “To me, the weekend is not for barbecues. It is to remember the people who gave all for our country.”
