It was RAINY all day today, but we had friends coming over and had planned on a cookout. We all laughed and decided, a COOKOUT it was going to be!!! We had the grill outside, under the awning of the house, just out of reach of the POURING rain, and a great picnic table layout in the garage with the door open. It was actually kind of neat having a nice, dry, bug free outdoor experience, watching the rain...tunes playing on the radio, and good friends, good food...and DRY!!! No hot, sweaty conditions!!! SO....does it have to be NICE AND DRY out for YOU to enjoy an OUTDOOR COOKOUT????
