Kansas weather – you just never know!

We were pleased to be in attendance at the Tenth Street Orchard Vintage Market this past Saturday in Sterling, KS. We were really hesitant to attend at the last minute because the weather had been so wacky – and dangerous! We received near monsoon like rain with rivers and fields flooding, and the occasional tornado here and there.

We live 2.5 hours from Sterling, so we stayed Friday night in South Hutchinson. We hadn’t been at the hotel long before we had to book it to the basement with the rest of overnighters as tornadoes passed near by. What a scary experience! Saturday morning was cold and cloudy! We hadn’t brought jackets because, hello? May? Fortunately, walmart had some on clearance. We bought those and a blanket and that kept us warm most of the day. We relished the warmth every time the sun came peeking out.

But the weather did not deter the shoppers! There was a great turn out and everyone was there to spend! We enjoyed live music and fresh barbecue. This was a first year show for Tenth Street Orchard and we think they did a smashing job of running it. We will be happy to return next year – wacky weather or not.
