Residents in the drought-stricken Midwest have been begging for rain, but many are watching the soggy approach of the remnants of Hurricane Isaac with mixed emotions: Did it have to ruin the end-of-summer party?

The storm is expected to drop several inches of rain over parts of Midwest this weekend, including Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.

Residents have been canceling camping trips, high school football games and even a parade in Indianapolis.

Chesterfield, Missouri, cancelled its Fourth of July fireworks show because drought had created a danger of fire. Now, officials are cancelling the rescheduled show because of rain. City of Chesterfield spokeswoman Libbey Tucke says they've been joking they'll probably have snow on the next date they pick.
