I'm enjoying a stormy day reading through the C.A.D. forums. I'm registered for a one-day festival tomorrow in a little village near my home. Since it's less than 15 miles, it's not a huge deal although all the usual packing, unpacking, repacking, loading, unloading, etc., is the same. North Central Arkansas is in a rainy spell right now and there have been brief thunder and lightning storms for two days off and on and looks like much the same for tomorrow (and much of next week). There are a lot of trees in the beautiful little park and it's a lovely place when it's dry and not overly windy. I did that show year before last and made a whopping $57. It's almost 3:30 p.m. and I've just decided I'm not going. Can't see much upside for myself nor my husband who will be doing most of the grunt work this year.
With that bit of background, I'd like to know how you experienced folks handle little events and weather? Since I've already made my decision, your input probably won't change my mind, but I'm just curious. The spaces at the country festivals only cost $10, so it's not much of a loss. I contacted the coordinator earlier today and I'm told it's a go in spite of the weather. The rain won't bother the old car show and some of the vendors, but neither of my neighbors (a face painter and an author's group) are going.
Anything to share?
