Wasn’t this SUMMER Fest???

What a day. The weather changed like nobody’s business. No it is not so unusual in Seattle for that to happen! But after two days of incredible weather it turned on us today. We had rain and wind gusts that kept our tent moving all day. Near the end of the day, twice in about fifteen minutes actually our tent nearly flipped over. The second time was quite scary.

We were very lucky. Two gentlemen were walking up the street when the second gust of wind hit and the tent went airborne. My sister and I were grabbing poles and trying to hold down our tent with very little luck. They quickly got what was happening and dropped their stuff and took the other two poles of the tent and helped to get all four corners back on the ground. Even with four of us it was a tough hold. Once it was steady they allowed us time to pack up everything, which was about to get soaked and blown into the street and get it into our cars. Then they helped us tear down the walls and the tent itself and get it into its bag before they took off. Without their help we would have been in major trouble!

We had a very successful three days. The Twisted Totes® were a great hit and we had a terrific response to them. It was fun doing the Summer Fest, visiting with friends and neighbors and meeting new folks. We got lots of feedback that will be helpful. We are going to do the Alki Art Fair in two weeks. Right now I’m tired and going to put my feet up. Until later….enjoy!
