I was very happy with the purchase of my shiny new canopy. I even got a chance to use it at the last art show in Covington (worked like a charm, by the way). The second time I used it however, it broke.
It was at my son's first birthday party two weekends ago. The tent was setup over a table in the yard to fend off the mean, old sunshine. And it was a hot day at that, until along came a thunderstorm which quickly gathered water in a slackened section of canopy, building up enough weight until: "Crash!" "Bam!" "Calamity!" I even heard the crack as the canopy collapsed in on itself. Sad. Very sad.
