7:18 PM - Some confusing instruction. Security had to shoo the crowd rushing to the stage. They don't want people standing by the barricade in case of lightning.

7:16 PM - ....But there are puddles an inch deep in the field. Come on down - muddy Flaming Lips is probably happening.

7:15 PM - Absolutely letting up.

7:12 PM - Looks like it's letting up? Maybe? A little?

7:07 PM - Curfew is also a factor. I think that's 10:30, but I'm not positive.

7:06 PM - "Everyone offstage!" Lightning definitely a concern.

7:01 PM - Lightning is getting closer. Everyone still seems in high spirits. Water now visibly pooling in the fields.

6:58 PM - A (clearly optimistic) Dr. Dog chant has broken out on the far stage.
