"No word yet as to whether the threatened walking protest against the event will still take place or if protesters will instead focus their attention on marching against the disruption to travel for local residents and drivers caused by the adverse weather instead."
Brilliant! That's almost up there with "The Horse Was Unhurt".
There's going to be a lot of people with non-refundable hotel bookings for Saturday night and possibly travel tickets. I wonder how many will go anyway and still ride the area? The weather for tomorrow looks OK and it's not clear when on Sunday the storm will hit, but it would probably be early enough to endanger the marshals and damage the event infrastructure so it seems right that they've cancelled. No-one wants a flying feed station tent!
