Looks like the rain is supposed to taper off by noon to 20% chance of precipitation and warm up to about 53-degrees F!

I've got my pregame all sketched out and I'm ready to chalk. See you all there!

You what I've missed most about the off-season... obsessively hovering over the Frost Park Chalk-off thread for updates all Friday afternoon.

It is good to be back.

I'm voting for Dawn. I like the idea of a umbrella full of sunshine. I am tired of the rain.

Also, I'd love everyone to wish my daughter a happy birthday. She turns 5 this weekend!

Everyone should also wish Larry a happy birthday. He also turns 5 this weekend.

by Erik

Hmmmm. I wonder which chalk piece featuring electronic billboards will get the most votes?

Ariels looks pretty good.

by MsPoppy

One Vote for Brian and family. although it makes me sad for the poor scorched Charlie Brown houseplant.

by Erik
on 4/1/2011 @ 4:22pm

by debivans

I vote for Ariel. I'd like to see how long we can keep up a winning streak.

by Dianne
on 4/1/2011 @ 7:42pm
I vote for Ariel.

We were going to come today but decided not to in the rain. The Garfield Kid will apparently be making his triumphant return to chalking when it is not raining.

With only a few hours to spare, I bring pictures from Vince:

on 4/1/2011 @ 8:28pm
Sorry I didn't make it. It's a hard choice since there are many good entries. Brian's is very good as is Adam's, but I'm a sucker for Starry Nights too. So my vote goes to Ariel. See you when the rain ends!

by Bart
on 4/1/2011 @ 8:42pm
I vote for Brian. I sure could use some of that sunshine and the colors are cheerful.

by KevinFreitas
on 4/1/2011 @ 8:53pm
I vote for Dawn's incredible umbrella. My first pick for the billboard theme would be Joel but everyone's was pretty great! Nice work everyone and make sure to tell you friends to vote. There's still just over three hours left!

by Dianne
on 4/1/2011 @ 9:18pm
Whoa, Vince took some great photos!! You guys should check them out! I especially like all the ones of our hands chalking :)

This is a really difficult week for voting, especially since I already vowed to myself that I wasn't going to vote for myself, at least not in the very first episode.

After narrowing it down by deciding to vote for a billboard-themed drawing, I have to VOTE for ARIEL.

In related news, my video of today's chalk-off is up and viewable as of a little bit ago:

by reeciebird

I vote for Joel even though he taught my children about angry birds. Soggy tulips is a close second.
