The bucket = Pawtucket

Kinda like the Dunk = The Dunkin Donuts Center

I'm going to a PBruins game tonight. Hoping they make it through this round!

Thumbs up WDW in the Summer

Hello Rhode Islanders,

I wanted to ask Rhode Islanders their opinion about visiting during the summer months June-Aug. How bad is the heat? Rain, hurricanes etc??
Any thoughts?
Thanks,

We've been twice in July and once in August. The heat is unbearable...IMO. You have to always have water with you, look for shade, and run for the AC! Haven't been there for a hurricane though which is good.

Generally it is not my favorite time to go, but I am a person who doesn't like that kind of heat. Give me January and a sweatshirt and that's what I call a vacation!

I've been a few times in the summer months.... May, August and late Sept. And yes it is VERY hot and unbearable. That being said, I always say I will never go back in the summer and still end up going then. As this year I am going to Disney in less than 3 weeks. But I wanted to go for my birthday. And then going again in the last couple days of Aug and into Sept. That time I will be going for the AKV as I want check it out. But my preferred time to go is during the F&W and MNSSHP. The temp is great and the extra stuff going on is fun. I have so far been lucky enough in all the times I have been so far not to get caught with a hurricane coming through.

P.S. PBruins won last night. Let's hope they can keep it up for tonights game!

Looked like a great game! Goalies, you can never trust them.

We usually go in August, and yes it is SOOOOOOO hot. A couple years ago we went between all the hurricanes, and seems as though the hurricanes took all the hot humid weather with them that year, and it was absolutely beautiful!

I will be there albeit very brief, both the day before our cruise and the last day of our vacation time. We are staying in VB for two nights after our cruise then back to SSR for the last evening before coming home. 9 days and counting.

We've been a few times in the summer, most often in late August, due to the kids' school schedules. And YES it is Africa Hot. Like walking into a hot and damp sheet when you step outside, even at 8 am. Breathing is a challenge. Ugh. Thankfully the kids are older now and we are not bound by school vacation weeks. Our next trip is planned in October for my birthday, the Food and Wine Fest and MNSSHP. Can't wait!

Oh! We were caught in WDW for Hurricane Charley, the first of the string of hurricanes that battered Orlando. We were in Epcot when it shut down and saw all the merchandise carts tethered to the ground, watched some CMs place boards across the bottom of the Innovention doors to prevent flooding, and saw the ticket booths all wrapped in cellophane. We had just moved that day from BWV to the Poly and had to stay inside the room that evening and our dinner was food from the Poly snack shop in the lobby. When the storm hit we watched from our balcony (where we were NOT supposed to be) as a transformer across the lake blew and the MK went dark. The next day there were branches etc all over the grounds at the Poly and the pool was closed. We went to the MK that day ( IIRC it was the only park open) and were astounded at how well it handled the storm. Damage to MGM and Downtown Disney was more noticeable and sad.

I have to say that WDW handled the storm quite well and I would not let Hurricane Season stop me from visiting in that time frame.

Now the HEAT... well, that's another story.

Listen. You want to talk heat?? I was visiting my sister in RI last July (week of the 18th or so). I could not believe how hot it was there! I was eating at one of my favorite restaurants, Aunt Carrie's, and the sweat was pouring off of my head! And I could not, not order chowder and clam cakes. What could I do???? (other than sweat).

Speaking of "chowda" (Rhode Island style, I never knew there was such a thing!And the oyster crackers kept on coming....)

Townies is E. Providence, right? I used to live there for a spell and I don't remember Valley's. Was it after 1986???

I could be wrong here, but wasn't Valley's on Post Road adjacent to the airport (pretty close to the Post Road/Airport road intersection)?

For extra credit... What was the previous name of Airport Road?
