Living Up To Its Name

As we were closing down Windycon today, the shift in weather from unseasonably warm to cold and rainy resulted in massive winds ahead of the storm. One of the hotel carts with a banquet table on it as a topper was being used to load out of the con when a gust of wind took the table off the top and sent it flying away, nipping one of our staff members (who didn't appear badly hurt) and banging into a minivan (which also didn't appear badly hurt).

This was later followed by horizontal rain.

Overall, this was more weather than I really prefer when we're moving out. :)
