FIrst Quarter Score: Snow 1 Art Show 0

snow2 I showed up to begin setting up for the Brookside art show here in Kansas City late this afternoon to find out the snow was coming down too hard allow getting the big tent I was supposed to be under set up. So they postponed setting it up until tomorrow middle of the day (hopefully), which means they had to cancel the Friday hours for the show. So now the three day show (two and a half really I guess) is now down to a two day show on Saturday and Sunday only–maybe, if the weather improves. And to think I drove 1200 miles from Montana to do a show here because the weather in Montana is too iffy until July to do outdoor art shows.]]>

Spring Snow

Kansas City Snow

Spring Snow Kansas City, Missouri 2013

I’m in Kansas City, waiting to set up for the Brookside Art Annual in a couple of hours. The forecast is for accumulating wet snow tonight through tomorrow noon at least with winds gusting to 30mph. Not much improvement expected after that either it seems. So, if you live in the Kansas City area and are a hardy type, dig out those mukluks you put away for the season and come on down. I’ll be the one wondering why he drove all the way from Montana when he could have just stayed home if he wanted this kind of meteorological abuse. My booth is under the big tent so at least you’ll be dry, if not warm, once you’re under it.]]>

I read or speak very little French, so the graffiti in Paris provided as much information as did the actual signage–and in a more artful format.
