Memorial Day Surprise: Day Brings Rain!

In an earlier post I shared that a car dealer in Greeley, Colorado, agreed to give away the 34 cars sold during May 13-16 if the official airport weather station indicated that Memorial Day brought rainfall of an inch or more between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Now the dealer did not assume all of the risk: he paid an insurance company to take over the risk, and make the $800,000 in payments should it rain.

Well, it did indeed rain in Greeley yesterday. And the official reading will be announced later today.
