Football Fridays return

It was raining in Russell when I departed my garage at 3:20. It continued raining through Hays and Plainville, but by time I reached Stockton on US 183, the precipitation subsided. When I got to the junction of 183 and US 36 in Phillipsburg, the sun was trying to break through the clouds.

I pulled into Thunder Ridge High at 5:15. It figures to be a great early September night for football: mild, no rain, not much wind, and no sun glare to affect my pictures.

The only question is my camera. Will it work again, or will it malfunction like it did last night? I’ve taken a backup camera body to be safe. Either way, I’m covered. It’s just the backup doesn’t have the resolution of my main camera.

We’re 70 minutes from kickoff in Kensington. Another high school football season is here.
