HATTIESBURG,MS (WDAM) - Remnants of Lee washed out the possibility of having one last cookout of the summer.

So, some people stopped by the Shed to get their barbeque fix. During lunch time today the Shed had customers as far as Jackson coming in out the rain for pulled pork, sausages and potato salad.

Some customers said they were not planning a Labor Day cook out, they just needed a break from watching the rain at home.

"There was nothing else to do, so we came downtown. I have eaten here a few times, and we decided we would take our daughters out for lunch today," said resident of Hattiesburg, Yancey Montgomery.
