Some cool Hard Water Damage images:

While watching the fire, it appeared that the former Remnant House had either caught fire or was about to, and we (the other spectators and myself) concluded that it would burn down as well. However, firefighters were able to save it. Just as I took this picture, I remembered that when the building was renovated last Spring, they added a taller firewall between it and the neighbouring building, and that is probably the main reason the building survived. It’s a good thing it did, as the owner has invested a fair amount into repairing it. Everything in the area was frosted, including a tree across the street that was completely covered in white ice. I couldn’t get any pictures because the smoke was too thick and my camera was fading out of consciousness.
Looking at the building, it doesn’t appear to have suffered much damage at all. Excellent work by Thunder Bay Fire and Rescue.
At approximately 3:30am on January 28, 2010, fire broke out at 127-131 Simpson Street. Neighbouring 133 Simpson Street caught fire last March.

Markings on the pole indicate various high water marks of the Potomac River. At knee-level are floods of 1975 and 79. At hip level in 1976. At twice my height in 1996 and a foot above that in 1972. Realize that the pole is several hundred feet from the river and about 20 feet above it’s normal level.

Show preparation in progress. Location: my living room 1.5 days before the show.
Table cloth will be added, more rearranging to be done, and product inventory added for sale. Its a good thing I bought 2 6 foot tables when they were on sale…as this one goes back…its damaged right out of the box.
Don’t forget the chairs, sunscreen, food and water, sales receipt book, and a healthy happy helper if possible. I also will be crafting on site…so more tools and supplies will be added. And the bags, business cards…price tags…on and on it goes.
No, I do not have enough inventory (which is ALWAYS the rant of every person doing these events)…but I figure, this is my first street fair, and only my second show ever. I will make the best and learn what I can, and have a great time of it regardless of the bottom line. I am amped for a great weekend! Part of it is making contacts, and networking and handing out business cards. Its not just about sales anyways.
