October Winds

Every year they seem to hit at one time or another in my area. This year it happened early. Last night was a frightfully blustery night. While I had only put out a few tombstones in my cemetery, every one of them are now laying flat. In my rush to get off to work, I have left them at the whim of the elements. Hopefully the fence will keep them confined to my yard.

It seems by now I would have learned that just because they look like stone doesn't mean they are actually heavy like stone.


  1. Deathtouch also reported some wind fatalities on his blog. I hope you don't have too much prop carnage waiting for you at home.

  2. No worries. I only had a few stones out, and was stupid for not anchoring them in the first place. I am concerned about the forecast of rain totalling 3 - 4 inches over the next few days, though.

    Maybe it is my chance to get out and work with the lighting...electricity + rain...yeah baby!
    ( NOT! )

  3. I've suffered a few also. My big tombstone that is weighted down by 2x4's still blew over.

  4. Sorry to hear that. I have a friend in Edmonton that had some major damage to his display the other day. In that light, I guess I cannot complain about the rain in my area.

    Good luck getting set up.
