Once everything was tied down, it started to rain slightly. It's sweltering hot inside the tin shack, so I had all the windows and the front door open. I was prepared with a mop for a little rain to get inside. Suddenly, big cracks of thunder, the dog swooshed under the bed, and there was absolutely horizontal rain in a deluge hitting our front. I had to whip outside to close the door and then go for the windows. Water got into everything. Lucky for us, it only lasted a minute (if that), and the only damage was a knocked-over patio chair.
WE WILL REBUILD!
But the important thing was that we got 2 inches of rain, where most people are still dry. This may save my plants.
