Socked Again by Mother Nature

We were coasting along for most of the summer with good luck, for the most part, with the weather. Each week there were threats of rain and thunderstorms, and each week we seemed to luck out and get nice weather. This helped a lot in terms of business at the farmer's market (FM). Funny how that works.

Well, all good things must come to an end, and this past week we seemed to get our share of bad weather. At the big city market we got socked by that massive windstorm that sent everyone's tent flying across the green. Then, this past local market, it rained the entire time. I kept hoping that at the very least the rain would stop. I can deal with clouds, but constant rain does amazing things to customers at FMs.

Either way, as I mentioned, we can't really complain, because the weather has worked in our favor for most of the summer. That, of course, won't stop me from whining, but what are you going to do?

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Thomas Bush for the pic.
