Two weeks ago something happened at the market for the first time - it was cancelled due to weather. We've only been doing the market for a few years, but I think I heard the manager say this was a first. This year has been brutal with the weather and every market day we seem to get socked with a storm. To rub salt in the wound, the weather is always beautiful before and after, so somebody is trying to tell us something.
The credo of the market, however, is rain or shine, and we've toughed it out through some brutal conditions. This time around, the forecast called for a 100% chance of rain with possible thunderstorms. Doing the market in the rain is a complete bummer as it is, but throw in lightning and it can be dangerous. Our feeling on our end was that if it was raining all day, we would opt out. In the end, the manager made the call and just told everyone to take the day off, so it worked out beautifully in the end.
Then again, beautiful is a relative term, isn't it?
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to MattysFlicks for the pic.
