The day before, in 97 degree weather, Len and son-in-law Steve erected a large tarp in the side yard under which would sit the picnic tables, people in their own lawn chairs and food line. Many years ago Len found the frame to this old wagon abandoned in a woods. He got it home, build the deck and we have used it as a serving table since. Len build the picnic tables. We kept three and gave one to our daughter in Maryland.
The tarp they hung is very heavy and quite large. Terri and Steve used it last year when they married as their reception shelter. At the yard party, when the winds whipped through, the poles holding up the tarp tumbled and the tarp collapsed on our guests.
Dark clouds rolling in.
