A change in the weather!

Susan Morrow (Show Director) describes the crazy weather we experienced this past week on the show's website:
The following week brought some dramatic changes in the weather and ushered in “the storm of the century” in Arizona. In 48 hours we had almost an entire annual rainfall and endured wind gusts of up to 70 mph. On Thursday of last week, our neighboring event, Russo and Steele Collector Car Auction lost two of their exhibit tents in the punishing winds. It was a very long day for all of us. We are grateful to report that we suffered no serious damage to our tents or any of the art work – just a lot of rain and some very high winds. The picture above shows what the courtyard looked like early in the day of our record rains.
It really was an incredible storm. It was the first time I wasn't allowed to work late! I actually tried, but was told I had to leave right away by a very worried show director. Apparently the Fire Marshal had stopped by and evacuated everyone. No one was allowed inside the tent that night! So, since I couldn't work, I decided the only thing left to do was go shopping! :)
