We are fortunate
We had the amazing experience of having a hail storm that lasted for well over 30 minutes yesterday in the middle of 105 degree temperatures. Most of the hail was golf ball sized. While it cooled things off, the storms also took down trees, damaged vehicles and of course took out the power to many. While we lost our power yesterday afternoon and then again last night, we were only out for about three hours total, far better than many in Chesterfield County that are still without power.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
