Sorry about the video quality. This was from 2009.
This was during a very scary moment at the Goderich Celtic Spirit Fest in 2009. The rain was pounded as the thunder shook the ground, though it’s hard to tell from this wee video. We moved much of my prints into our van to protect it and battened down the hatches of the display tent, which contained my original oil paintings. Fortunately, it was the beginning of a fabulous day, though it did take the better part of it to dry out.
And yes, it started out a bad hair day too! We were soaked protecting my work.
Since then, I did lose my tent in a storm in Kingston, where the winds were so high, I had to let go of my tent pole and allow it to fly off, without me! We’ve mostly experienced the odd wind storm, humongous downpours and tremendous heat, but have predominantly enjoyed beautiful days meeting interesting art and music lovers.
