For all 50 states, no events were ever canceled or rained out. I never missed a flight. When arriving at the stadium, there was not a cloud in the sky. Then, as I stood on the sidelines, the clouds started to roll in and a quarter of the way through the anthem, I was singing in a downpour. Afterwards, someone wrote on my Facebook page that the rain was tears of joy from the people in heaven, and it made me cry because my mom passed away three years ago, and I feel like knowing her, she probably asked God to make it rain so that I knew she knew that I'd finished.
