So this happened a few weekends ago. I was at Milford Memories and Jason was at Shaker Woods (the first weekend). We both always check our weather the day before. We've learned not to get worked up when it has rain or storms the week before the show. It always changes. We don't take stock in anything until the day of and then pray for the best!
On Friday of Milford Memories, it rained a little during the show but it wasn't bad. I was prepared and it wasn't windy or anything so it wasn't a big deal. At the end of the show, I put the sides on the tent and tried to tighten and secure everything. But I'm tired at the end of the day and just want to go lay down and use a decent bathroom LOL. So I knew it could rain but didn't care so much because I was too tired. I zipped the last zipper and said a prayer and left.
I got back to the hotel, ate and showered, and turned on the tv. The news said there was a tornado warning in some county. I'm not from MI so I have no idea and I wasn't actually concerned. Then I heard the siren go off outside. I still wasn't concerned then I realized I was on the 4th floor and I should be concerned! Anyway, I figured out where I was and where my tent was and where the tornado is. The tent was between me and the tornado. So all night long I was praying my tent and all of the other vendors tents were still there! I got there first thing in the morning and the tent was still standing!
The next day at Jason's show, there was a line of storms coming that had produced tornados. It was going to be there around 3:30. He ended up packing up and leaving which is good. The storms were really bad and I'm not quite sure how much damage they caused throughout the state. The next day, our booth was still standing!
I have to say this is one of my favorite verses to pray as we leave for shows or anywhere for that matter.
The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore. Psalm 121:7-8
