This is what we did back in '94 when the hail came through our garden on
the Thursday before our Show.  All we had left was a beautiful carpet of
multi-colored confetti on the ground.  It is a good thing it was pretty
because that year, for us, it was over.  I cried for 2 hours.:-(  We
just had a hail here followed by tornados all over the place.  We'll
know in the morning how bad it was.  Notice it is the Thursday before a
Saturday show again??
