On the bright side, the power stayed on, at least until this last post just before 4 pm.
All was well until the wind decided to kick things up a couple of notches. large wooden carvings at the Artisans Market started to blow down. The vendors had to remove the tops and sides of their booths to keep the wind from taking them away.
The Trinidad Volunteer Fire Department got a call and had to take their truck through the crowd that despite the wind, was still going strong.
