What rain? Not stopping Rochester!
By: Rick Cognata
After about three straight weeks of beautiful weather in Upstate New York, of course it had to rain Saturday morning. I was anticipating quite a few no-shows, but we ended up having about 13 Teslas and roughly 28 people making the 34 mile trip down to Seneca Lake State Park. Luckily, it wasn’t a torrential downpour, but it was that annoying misty rain. Shortly after arriving though, it stopped and the sun starting to peek through.
What the sun ended up peeking at were two model Ys right in front of us, a Midnight Silver one owned by Bo Jaynes, and a Pearl White one that Tom and Darlene Peaslee decided to show off as well. Both were definitely the main talking point of the day. As you can see in the photo below, we made sure to park the white Y right next to a white X (Tony Deusenbery) to see the differences which were very interesting. For pretty much everyone there, this was the first time seeing one up close and personal and it is definitely beefier than the model 3.
To top it off, we were surprised to find that there was a small farmers market in the same parking lot as ours and a few members ended up getting some fresh fruit to go with our lunches.
All in all, just another great drive with quite a few new members. Just love the camaraderie that we all share and looking forward to seeing you all at our next event on July 25th when we are meeting up in Batavia with the Niagara Frontier region for ice cream.
