Seeing how it's playing out. When I first got here, it was barely sprinkling. About an hour ago, It officially began raining, and now it's coming down hard. Robert lives in Revere earlier this morning, I caught up with him. He was out walking his dog, Zoe, this interview really bad later on in the day, so this is our only chance to get To get her out. Does she handle the rain? Oh, she doesn't like it at all. How about you? Um I don't mind it don't mind. I think he would mind it now. That was about an hour and a half ago. It's pretty much harder now. Even the diehard dog walkers like Robert have cleared out. I am seeing a couple of puddles forming on Revere Beach Boulevard.
