Look for flags today.
Today is Veteran´s Day, and despite the wet, rainy weather, ceremonies will be going on today, and some government offices will be closed in observance.
Federal and state offices are closed today, as is the post office, the courts, and public libraries.
Most city and county offices will be closed too, along with public schools.
The Veteran´s Day Parade has been cancelled, due to the weather, according to Tom Slaght, Commander of the VFW Post 4748.
