The irony is not lost. On the opening day of the eco film and art fest we were hit by micro burst during the wind storm. Our announcement board was launched 15 feet across the yard. Thankfully no one was standing on the sidewalk. At the same time in the back yard garbage cans, tarps, and sheets of siding were sucked out of the enclosure and across the parking lot. Our colourful fence was dealt its final death blow. It all happened in about a second. Cannot imagine sustained winds like that. The glacial snow moved our wheel chair ramp. Now wind. Could a flood be far behind? (photo k.tilma).
