It rained all night Saturday night, and pretty much all day Sunday. So when I packed up my tent on Sunday afternoon, it was still soaking wet. Not ideal for storage. Unless you really like mildew.
So I made a mental note to keep an eye on the weather for a bright, sunny day in which to set up my tent in the backyard, allow it to dry out, and pack it up properly.
Yesterday was that bright, sunny day. It was cold, but dry and sunny. It was perfect for drying out a tent. Only I didn't set my tent up yesterday. I set it up today, right before I went in to work this morning. And while I was at work, it started snowing. And it snowed all day; all over my poor, little, already-wet tent.
So, in case you were wondering why it snowed in Philadelphia today, now you know. It snowed because I set up my tent. Love me or hate me for it, but that's just the way it is.
My tent did look pretty under all that snow, however. Anyone want to go winter camping?
