Dog Days Of August In Canton


This is what our weather is to be like for the next several days. All I can say is When setting in the booth with two fans blowing on you it’s still hot. The fans are just blowing hot air. Have I just pointed myself out ….full of hot air? Customers are wondering like zombies and have on the bare minimum of clothing. People are so funny why would you want to get out in this stuff. I even ask myself why  I’m here. Parent’s with small children and their dogs are here… how careless..
Its not the money, its to cover our expenses and that’s all it is for this time of the year. Lot of the vendors don’t come in August but they still must pay their rent or lose their spot. Yes, the owner will rent out your spot to a temporary. So,its a win win situation for him.Like double dipping he comes out and if your not here you lose. imageWe have four new temporary vendors acroo0s from us. One of them happens to be our friends Ed and Sharrine who we use to do craft shows with in Oklahoma.

We had a pretty good storm come through the other night. The wind picked up and the rain came down in sheets. We had lots of thunder and lighting.  I just wish this system came out of the North instead of the Southeast. I’m sure had it…. it would have cooled things down.

image We were expecting some possible hail with this system but are very thankful that nothing like that materialized. We were reading Rollie’s AND Gina’s blog and they just missed a hail storm near Rapid City, SD that had golf ball size hail.

After the storm passed through we had this beautiful moon rise.image Sorry, for the moon not being any clearer but I shot this with no tripod. I don’t own one anyway, I just used the side of the MH to brace myself.

Until next time….MtnAire Travlers


  1. I really don't like storms with lots of rain and wind...especially in an RV. I'm glad you missed the hail. Hail can do a great deal of damage in a short amount of time.
    I don't know about you all but we can't wait for this hot weather to cool off.

    Take care,

  2. we just came from cruzin2some and saw your link...what a great picture on your blog! Being able to share rv experiences sure makes it easy to love this lifestyle....We can't wait to look as happy as you two after 9 years on the road! We begin late 2011...see ya!
