What Was That Name Again??

Heart-wrenching. Just heart-wrenching. When I read this letter from Arkansas' Log Cabin Democrat (, I couldn't help but think how cruel Mother Nature can be. She has a cold, cold heart.

Toad Suck Daze this year, especially on Saturday, was a complete disaster. It seems almost every year that inclement weather cancels certain festivities, like this year’s headliner concert by Clint Black. Wouldn’t it just be easier for Toad Suck Daze organizers to move the date of the festival to a less rainy time of the year?

The highest average rainfall of any month in the Conway-Little Rock area is in May. So, why have a festival when statistically it’s most likely to rain? The lowest average rainfall of any month in the Conway-Little Rock area is in August. Thus, moving the Toad Suck Daze festival to the late summer or early fall would likely be a better solution.

The Toad Suck Daze committee should take moving the festival to a less rainy time of year into serious consideration. It’s a move that would prove to be a win-win situation for all.

Toad Suck Daze?? Oh man would I like to know the story behind this festival. Clearly you can see why I am so upset. I feel for this poor girl. I mean, come ON! Toad Suck Daze being rained out?? That's just too painful to think about. All of the earthquakes this year in Chile, Haiti and seemingly everywhere else there was earth that could quake, a volcano shutting down European airspace, floods, bush fires...NONE of them compare to the "complete disaster" that was the cancellation of Toad Suck Daze events. I hope the Toad Suck Daze committee is on this. DAMN YOU Toad Suck Daze committee!
