There were over 90 people at the concert. A little less that the spring concert but it was the 1st time we had a fall concert. It was a great concert and both groups sounded incredible. And of course I had way too much fun.

Temperature Change

I grew up in So Cal (Southern California) and when it was warm during the day it would slowly change colder. Here is Galveston the temperature when from 80 to 60 instantly. Never experienced a temperature change that drastic in that short of time.
