This morning was a little rough. We have a large 10 x 20 ft tent set up in the front yard to help with the yard sale- the garage is totally full. My parents told me not to worry about the canopy too much- unfortunately a HUGE storm rolled through this morning dumping a ton of rain. We noticed that the rain was collecting and pooling on the roof . I went out and got under the canopy (which is full of garage sale stuff) trying to push the roof up and get the water to run off. I got one side kind of drained, when I noticed that the roof on the other side was collapsing. I got out just in time before the roof gave way and the supports buckled. We fixed it (finally- only 3 poles were bent beyond repair) but now we may get more severe storms tonight. I was so worried about the tent blowing away that I never even thought to worry about the weight of the rain.
Here is a picture of the tent now (fixed) and some before garage sale pics- some of the stuff that is in the garage. I didn't have the lights on so they are a bit dark. The clothes and books are still packed away until tomorrow. I will post more pics when the whole thing is set up. I hope and pray the weather is good (or at least not crappy) so this stuff goes to live with someone else. Wish us luck!
