An Unseasonably Cold Outdoor Art Festival

B-r-r-r-r-r-r!!!  Temperatures Friday afternoon have already dropped to 48 degrees, and the arctic wind is cutting us to pieces!  I pulled off my gloves long enough to take this picture, and type a few words.  Texas had been enjoying temperatures in the 80’s only a few days ago.  Too bad an outdoor festival had to draw this kind of weather lottery–seems a cruel practical joke.

I’m enjoying my Hemingway biography, and hoping some crowds will pick up eventually.  Frankly, I cannot blame anyone for choosing to stay indoors today rather than stroll the park.  But the artwork out here is magnificent–80 artists represented this time.

More later.  Got to pull my gloves back on!

Thanks for reading.

    Stay warm David! We in Indiana are bracing for 4-10 ” of snow. Snow when it is almost April! Yikes! Good luck. I hope a few hearty souls venture out and you have a successful fair.

      Hi Linda,
      I’m responding very late to this. The weather was deplorable and the festival finally canceled on the morning of its final day. A dreadful experience.

    David, as a lover of Hopper and Wyeth I thought you might enjoy this lecture on Youtube…Linda
