Principal Eric Tracy tweeted the following: "Unfortunately wet ground, wet stands and the possibility of chairs and stage sinking in the ground are problems. Sorry guys!" ORIGINAL STORY: Eric Tracy doesn’t seem much like the dancing type. But for this year’s graduating class, the Wilmington High School principal is willing to show off a step or two. The Class of 2012 is set to graduate on Sunday at 2 p.m. But where the ceremony takes place depends on the forecast, which includes a 50…
