    Indeed when we walked home after dinner the first night the sky was so clear that we could see an unprecedented number of stars (for L.A.). The full moon was so bright that it made the night sky a deep blue instead of black — it was one of the most beautiful nights I can remember. We hoped as we walked that if the moon represents the Jewish people, that this intensely bright and shining full moon was a good sign. Gut Moed.

    I have to admit, I was pretty amazed at how hard it rained and how it stopped for us to be in the Sukkah, only to come back in the middle of the night and stop (and not return) for the rest of the next day.

    The 17th rainout in Dodger Stadium history occured on April 17, 2000, the only Dodger home game to be rained out during the 2000 season. In 1999 the Dodgers also had one home game washed out (April 11, 1999), ending the club’s record 856-game consecutive streak without a rainout. Prior to that, the Dodgers’ last home rainout was three consecutive games against the San Diego Padres April 19-21, 1988, the first consecutive games washed out since moving to Dodger Stadium. Prior to 1976, the Dodgers were rained out only once – against the St. Louis Cardinals on April 21, 1967. The 1967 rainout ended a streak of 737 consecutive games at Dodger Stadium without a postponement. The second home rainout, on April 12, 1976, stopped a string of 724 straight games.

    So, from 1962 to 2000, only 17 baseball games had ever been rained out at Dodger Stadium. Yes, we Angelenos are used to our sunny weather.

    My son and I slept in our sukkah and did a quick bug-out when it rained again at 4:30am, catching a good 5-6 hours of quality sleep.

    #1 topic at all our seudos was how grateful we were that none of our mitzvos were rained out.

    Also, a common joke was that this year there were a lot more “Lubavitch” sukkahs. (Their custom is not to decorate.) Nobody wanted their kids’ artwork or other paper-based decorations ruined.
