Storm Damage

That storm that I mentioned having to get out of the pool for did this...
It lasted all of 15 minutes. I found my receipt for the gazebo yesterday. I had it exactly 1 year and 2 days. We had just moved the picnic table (that my father in law made- Thank you!!!) under it the night before. We never did really get to use it. $180 down the drain. I had such dreams for entertaining under it. It had shelves in the corners for plants and I wanted to put little white Christmas lights in it like they show at the store. Ughhh!

Now you are talking my language. I hate when money is wasted. It kills me. This is one reason why we should buy used. Can you return it w/o the receipt??
I am really sorry for that.

everyone is safe though and you do not have a basement so we are happy about that.

We can't return it. We put it in an area with high winds and they just don't sustain it. We don't really have an area w/o high winds at times.

where did you get it?

home owners insurance?

Target. It's not their fault we put it in a high wind area. Home owners insurance would have a $500 deductible at least. We've just learned an expensive lesson and will not buy another one. We will build some sort of picnic shelter that will withstand the wind.

Oh, what a bummer. I hate it when something happens like that, that you really have no control over. It's hard.

If they sell the same one but it and return the broken one with the new receipt.
