"Not a big fan. We were golfing this morning. It was a mess, but glad to be out here," said Jake Swedberg from Minnesota.
A little bit of rain certainly isn't dampening any spirits.
"It's better than the snow in Nebraska right now!" said John Tucker from Nebraska.
"It's kind of nice to have a change of weather," said Sam Kelley, who drove up with a group of friends from Tucson for a bar crawl. "We already bought the tickets, they're non-refundable."
And as 2021 comes to a close, many say moving forward into the New Year, they're wishing for the best with fewer clouds, and more sunshine-filled moments.
