Janie, being in Texas would be horrid! I feel so bad for them, I can`t imagine having to leave and then coming back to see what is left, if anything. And the cleanup, just awful.
We had 5 shows this weekend and only one was able to open and it wasn`t great. This is the first time ever, that we have lost an entire weekend, so I am just looking at it that it only makes all the other weekends, good or bad, look even better. While it cost us a lot, I`m grateful that we didn`t loose any product or tents or any setup gear. One of the shows was flooded and some pretty bad winds came thru two of them. Lots of people had their tents and product destroyed, so we were lucky.
I feel bad that everyone lost out on sales, not just myself, I have a few helpers that are really counting on this right now to stay afloat, so that is not good, but, we are looking forward to this weekend. Getting stuff dried out and ready to go again.
I have some friends that are also in the Jerky business and I`m guessing it was not good for them either. They were at the flooded show. They probably have tons of Jerky on the shelf now, I got an email on Sunday and they were offering some pretty good sales on Jerky if you ordered online.
