Now that it's November, I wanted to confirm with everyone for the Thursday, November 10 XLR extravaganza at Bob's Big Boy in Burbank. What is the time we're supposed to be there? Are we eating lunch or just watching everybody who walks by gawk at our cars? Do we need to reserve parking or dining space?

For those of you who will be coming form the West (going East) on 134, the exit is Pass Ave. Turn right, then right again and it's one block East of Pass. I'm not sure about the exit coming from the other direction. Either way, it is one block East of Pass on Riverside.

Thursday I was going to stop by for lunch at 11:30 am and meet up with those who can make it. Friday the 11th is the regular cruise night when everyone comes to Bob's. I was going to get there about 3 pm or so to get a parking spot and most of the people were going to come then.

There has been so little response to this thread that I am wondering if anyone is going to show up on Thursday. If you are going to be there, please speak up. If the get-together turns into a non-event, I'd rather be at the office. We were up to more than 10 cars originally, now it seems we're at 2.

I think that Robin and another person said they would make it on Thurs. The rest of the responders said they would come on Fri.

I will be there with my black XLR and my mom and dad are going to also come down and bring their silver XLR. Chalk up 2 more XLR's and three people from my group.

Jim called me this afternoon and did confirm that he would be there Thursday and well as Friday around 3 in order to get a parking spot. He is in San Diego at this time. I'll be there on Friday.

Currently the forecast is for rain tonight and Thursday. If it is not raining Thursday I plan to be there. If not, perhaps on Friday.

Sorry you can't do Friday, I was also looking forward to meeting you. I hope the rain is out of the area by Thursday. I used to live in Jersey and I would wash my car and by the time I'd get to my dates house, it would be raining.

Want to check your weather report one more time??

UPDATED: 3:05 pm PST November 8, 2005

LOS ANGELES -- A Pacific storm that may reach the Southland later Tuesday could bring heavy rainfall, thunderstorms, hail, waterspouts and strong winds to the region, according to the National Weather Service.

A flash-flood watch will go into effect in burn areas of Los Angeles County at 8 p.m. and run through Wednesday night.

"A strong upper low centered off the coast of Southern California continues to tap into a large area of subtropical moisture that will bring increasing threat of rainfall for Southern and Central California," according to an NWS statement.

The vanguard of the storm is expected to reach Los Angeles County Tuesday evening, but the brunt of the rain is expected to hit overnight, with possible periods of intense rainfall continuing through tomorrow evening, meteorologists said.

Scattered showers likely will continue into Thursday evening, due to the upper low stalling of the Southern California coast.

"This weather system will also bring a threat of thunderstorms, which could produce locally heavy rain and small hail, along with local wind gusts over 50 mph," according to the NWS. "In addition, conditions will be favorable for some rotation with storms overnight and Wednesday, so waterspouts and small tornadoes will be possible."

The NWS statement warns, however, "There is still some uncertainty in the timing and intensity for rainfall with this system, as cutoff low pressure systems can be very erratic."

The storm could bring a half-inch to 1 1/2 inches of rain to coastal and valley areas and up to 4 inches of the wet stuff in south-facing mountain areas. Other mountain areas could get up to 3 inches of rain before the storm moves on.

Funny. I was just about to post that it seems like every news outlet except KNBC4 predicts rain. I suppose when I watch them later, they will have changed their tune.

Does rain cancel the event on Thursday?

There's a button on the center council that you may need to use just in case it rains. Push it for about 30 seconds and you wont get wet. Just funnin! Hope to see you all there.
