Break out the rain gear, it is Art Fair week. Late afternoon storms almost certainly guaranteed. One has to ask, Just as mobile homes seem to be tornado magnets, is the Art Fair a severe thunderstorm magnet?

I think the organizers of the Fair should reconsider the choice of date in the future. I believe that it is cruel to schedule it on what is pretty consistently the hottest week of the year.
