Rain on Labor Day didn't stop Tri-State residents from relaxing and avoiding labor.
Several people went fishing in the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal in Hancock despite the showers.

Ron and Bonnie VanMeter of Hancock had a simple method to avoid getting drenched: They fished from under a bridge.
"It didn't bother us," said Ron VanMeter, who caught several carp.
Tim Baden of Hancock was more casual in his approach, sitting in a lawn chair by his car, fishing pole in hand.
He started fishing about 9 a.m. and had caught three carp by around 12:30. Rain or no rain, he was sticking to his plan to spend the holiday weekend fishing, he said.
