Can't Control the Weather!

Well, the weather channel did say yesterday was supposed to be rainy, but we really hoped it wouldn't be too bad. As I was packing the car, the sun came out and it looked like it would be a beautiful day. A little after noon, it started to rain lightly. It didn't bother us because I bought a tent (which excites me more than it should really). The rain went away and the sun came back out, but we were hearing thunder and watching some pretty serious clouds move across the sky.

Not only did those ominous clouds bring more rain, but they brought hail too! We quickly packed up soaps and stayed huddled under the tent. When the hail stopped, the sky cleared and the day became beautiful, but we decided to pack up anyway. The ground beneath us had become a lake and my table cloths were wet :( Plus, we didn't want to leave all of our boxes and such on the ground.

So, it wasn't a great show, but we learned some very important lessons. Always take the tent, put the sides on the tent (which we didn't) and roll them up for quick protection, and a tarp for ground cover would be very helpful. See, now we know and can be more prepared for the next time the Colorado weather goes crazy.

Does anyone else have any tips they would like to share to help us prepare for our next outdoor show? They are always appreciated!
