I don't believe you're supposed to leave the flag flying when it's raining.

I still do but I bet there is a rule for that. It rained & then it stopped here so everything is all dried out now. We hit 90 degs today.

 I just put a dozen American flags along the curb in front of my house.  Chance of rain = 30% tonight, 60% tomorrow.   If it rains, I will bring them inside.

What is rain? LOL
If a monsoon comes through, the flags come down . . . but we just don't get much precipitation.

Good Memorial Day question! Reminded me to put mine up. You're supposed to take it down in the rain and illuminate it at night.

The flag flies 27/7 and never at half mast. Only exception when it is time for replacement.

Those who want to quote title and chapter better have thick skin.

Mine comes down. It is also against the code to leave it up at night unless it is illuminated. Mine comes in every night.
