Not everyone was so lucky. A few poor people nearby had their tents fly out into the air and across the parking lot. Artwork went flying, it was scary! My artwork and my tent were just fine. I love my Trimline canopy!!!! I had quite a few weights holding it and I zipped up the wall facing the storm first. So, altogether I was OK. After my tent was fully zipped, I ran over to help a few other pick up what's left in the rain. It soon slowed to a drizzle and I packed up my artwork to leave for the day. The local Fire Dept arrived and were checking if people were hurt. They were also warning that hail maybe coming. Julie and I just left for the day. Que sera sera!
On the way to the car we saw a tent that was blown across the street into another parking lot. What a day! I needed to sit down, dry off, and have a drink! Julie and her sweet hubby took me out for dinner and a drink. I'm so lucky!
I'll be back tomorrow in the Cedarburg Cultural Center parking lot. I hope my luck holds out!
