|Broken Canopy Struts - Alameda County 2011|
|Canopy at Recycle Center - Marin County 2011|
As noted before, Mike's canopy was severely damaged during some high winds in San Anselmo.
Alas, replacing the damaged struts didn't work, since at two subsequent events even more struts got broken. (Probably some basic structural damage.) The latest problem came at the Oakland Farmers Market: not only did two struts completely snap, but others got bent, on their way to snapping.
So the old canopy had to be trashed, unceremoniously dumped into the recycle center pit.
New one ordered from Costco, but not used yet.
