Torrential Downpour + Art = Fun Fun Fun

Tonight I went to the annual SLC Arts Festival with Tracie and Inge. All seemed fun and festive until out of nowhere (to be fair, there were clouds in the sky, but no one knew they'd explode so suddenly and fiercely) we became trapped by a huge torrential downpour. Here's a picture before the downpour: And only a few minutes later, we were sitting under a tarp holding an umbrella, surrounded by throngs of people trying to keep dry from the neverending rain.Luckily we'd already laid claim to a table and chairs, so we were OK to wait out the thunder and lightning. It was an adventure to say the least! Once the skies had cleared, we were able to venture back out to the booths and I found a super cute flamingo puppet to amuse people with (and also a playmate for Galoon, perhaps?). Isn't it awesome? How could we pass that by? The best part about the rain was the double rainbow and unique clouds left in its wake.
Of course, I was not a fan of the ten mile hike back to Inge's car (*slight* exaggeration), but it was worth it overall for the fun time had by all. Thanks, girls! :)
