Always check the Weather!!

I am part of a Homeschool group called FAITH. It's a great group of women and families. To raise money for our group we were held a yardsale. It's kinda become an annual thing. Boxes and boxes... bags and bags of things were donated and they yard was set up and we were ready to go.

Everything was set up in my yard, and when it was set up we covered everything up and left it. Early that morning I heard something. Oh... it was something that wasn't good.

Thunder came rolling in.

It rained off and on all day the first day. It was bearable and we made it through. We had a good amount of people come even through the drizzling rain. Asking around we found that nobody checked the weather report. I mean really... we are in Florida... the "Sunshine State"

That night we covered everything again as best we could and hoped for the best.

It was not enough.

We were completely rained out! All the clothes were soaked, all the books were ruined. It was a disaster!

There really wasn't anything left to do but to clean up. So we got to it. We bagged up everything. It was kinda sad knowing what was going in the bags but not really being able to do anything about it. We couldn't donate anything because it was all ruined. All the clothes would have had to have been washed and dried, the books were soaking wet, any electronics that we had were probably ruined with all the rain.

60 bags later it was done. I was so worried that the garbage man wouldn't take it all but they did!!

What did we learn from all of this??? Next year someone will definitely be checking the weather!!
