Bracing for the Storm:When it rains

Monday, 18 July 2011

The best laid plans can go wrong sometimes

The recent rain floods in Lagos last weekend (weekend of the 10th) was traumatic to say the least. One really had to be in Lagos to experience it as the damp, the wet  and the cold can only be imagined. Sad enough, there were reports of fatalities, which really is the worst thing which could happen.

It got me thinking of all those who must have had events that weekend and the rain must have put a dampener on things, literarily! What does a bride/ host do in such a crazy circumstance?  I’m wondering if any of Jwi readers was affected in this way by the flood? I would love to hear from you.
We should have rented the hall after all ;-(
Fortunately, I didn’t have any event holding on the 10th and while I’m experienced enough to expect the unexpected [see this post], I honestly would not have known what to do! I mean the best laid plans and all- have you ever had your event ruined by bad weather or any other reason, absolutely beyond your control? What did you do to cope?
When you can't fight the rain!
