Brittany Hayes, 5, laughs as her friend Justin Goodwin, 4, gets wrapped up in his umbrella while playing in the rain and waiting on Sherry Hayes, Brittany’s mother, to put her son Todd in his car seat Tuesday after St. Francis Xavier Elementary dismissed classes for the day. Wind and rain were predicted to continue today with a high of 40 degrees.(The Vicksburg Post/MELANIE DUNCAN)
