|The Strings Tent in 2007|
In case you missed it, we had 75 mph winds with gusts up to 123 mph in Steamboat Springs yesterday. Extreme weather is not uncommon up here in Northwest Colorado and some of our patron’s most unforgettable Strings memories involve the wind.
“The wind blowing through the old tent and everyone wondering if the tent was going.”
“Sheet music blowing on the Gallery deck.”
“Holding the music stands on windy nights at Storm Meadows.” -Ted G
“Clothespins holding the music.”
“On the deck at Storm Meadows and the wind blowing the music stands.”
It was always exciting with concerts outside dealing with music blowing away and tent sides flapping. Fortunately the new Pavilion decreases influences from the weather and we sustained no major damage in this most recent storm.
