I’m at a 2 day art show in Canadaigua NY. After an extremely dry summer we are getting torrential downpours today… And some yesterday. At least tomorrow is projected to be beautiful. Of course, I’ll be at work, but…
Here’s a few things I made for the show

Is the show flooding or is your home and shop flooding? I hope it is the show and not your home…

We have just gone through massive flooding here in southern Louisiana and had several feet of water in my shop and a little less in our house.

We were on our way home from Boston earlier and it was coming down in sheets. I was hoping it missed you guys but I guess not. The Thruway slowed to 15 or 20 due to the downpour. Figured the crowd would have cleared out quickly. That’s the problem with these shows, we’ve done 3 Clothesline Arts Festivals and 2 of them have been impacted by heavy rain. Good luck my friend, hope it gets better.

A hurricane dropped the ceiling in my garage on to my car and tools. After cleaning, most everything was good ‘cept the non metal items were water logged and some of the wood had funny curves in them. So I understand your spot. I hope your permanent damage is only slight and mold does not become a problem. Your projects are appealing to the eye, nice job.

I now feel bad complaining about the downpour when other people had so much worse in rain recently. Several of my boards need some work and the finish on one wine stand was damaged, but I was pretty lucky.
Thanks for the thoughts!

Yeah one of my shows last year rained both days. Day one wasn’t bad because the people that ventured out were there to shop. They wanted to buy stuff so my total for the day wasn’t that bad. The second day was a total bust. One sale all day and several damaged pieces. Then you look at the poor folks on Louisiana or California and feel like a jerk for complaining.
