A Downpour on Memorial Day in Illinois
05:59 PM EDT
The President was able to lay a wreath at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Illinois before it started raining. But he was forced to take the stage only to announce to the crowd that his Memorial Day address had to be cancelled. The crowd was spared standing around in the rain, and the President attempted to make it up to some of them by talking with them on the buses they rode to dryness.
