    When Life hands you Lemons, you make Lemonade.

    And, when Life brings you lettuce, you make Salad. (I mean, what the fuck else do you do with lettuce?)

    And, when that f'n bitch in charge of Nature brings you Wind, think of it as Nature's friendly blowjob and go buy a kite.
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    Well I guess this means Radiohead wont be hanging all those giant screens for weekend #1. I wonder how many bands stage setups will be affected by the winds.

    Morning update - WINDY

    just 7 am and there is NEVER any wind in the morning here.....but today it's going strong. Be ready for heavy heavy winds tonight. Get your video cameras ready as tents will be flying through the air..

    Expect 60-70mph wind and you'll be better off than those not planned.

    I hope the stages are built to withstand such strong winds. I get all paranoid about that since that whole Indiana State Fair tragedy.

    Well, you've sufficiently scared me enough to drive up this afternoon instead of tonight in the heavy winds.

    (Or maybe I just wanted to leave earlier and found a convenient excuse )

    I don't know the exact speeds or anything, but it was VERY windy Sunday night in 2005, for Bright Eyes set. The stages and art will be fine. Way too much worrying.

    Definitely secure your tents though hah.

    Six pm and all is calm. A few mild gusts but not much more. A few people from the camping staff came by to remind us to stake down our tents. Have some corkscrew stakes on the ez-up canopy. Should be an interesting night.
