« Part 4: Another stab at it... Part 5 of Craft Markets.. series Part 6: Before the storm... »

Today started out so well… made a sale at 6.00 am….

But by mid morning a super storm tore through Brisbane… and the Kelvin Grove Markets…

We are the gazebo on the other side of the blue tent…Very fortunate that all that happened to us was we got a little wet… darn… a lot wet…

Torrential rain and winds gusting at 95 kph…so much damage in such a short time…

Like I said we escaped any real damage and no one was hurt…

Very glad you’re OK. Hope nobody was hurt. That’s about 60 mph to us. I am surprised that any of the canopies were still up. Hope you didn’t lose much product.

Larry,

Glad that you didn’t get hurt. Hope that your beautiful work survived.
We just had a major storm here in NY, so I can imagine the panic when it hit.

Wow, sorry to hear about the vendors being stuck in that storm. I’ve had my canopy bent by high winds, but nothing compared to what you went through.

Holy moly! Sorry to hear of things like this. Glad you’re alright and hope nobody else got hurt. Mother Nature is, well, so unpredictable anymore.
