It was the BEST of venues, it was the WORST of venues! When planning our Agent Retreat on September 8th, I kept a constant eye on the weather all week long. We all know how weather can make or break an event. Remember last year’s Maryland Convention being canceled 2 days before the event?
The weather forecast was predicting perfect weather. Kent Manor Inn has a beautiful brick patio that I had set up for breakfast dining outside. As I was approaching the venue that morning, I saw RAINDROPS on my windshield! Then, I saw a beautiful rainbow (where there’s a rainbow, there’s rain!) The entire Kent Island was dry, except for a pocket of rain hovering over the venue!
The courteous staff was moving all the outside tables under shelter and wiping away our “liquid sunshine.”
Oh…it gets better!! We had a terrific turnout and the food and speakers couldn’t have been better. I always carry a sweater wherever we go because I always get cold. Around 11am, I nudged Rick at the table asking if he was warm. He said he was comfortable so I thought it was just me. By noon, the place was like an OVEN!
The air conditioning unit couldn’t keep up with cooling the inside due to the HEAT WAVE outside!
All in all, it was a GREAT DAY and we just got a sampling of Paradise Island weather, where there’s always a beautiful rainbow after a spontaneous shower!
Thanks to everyone who came out that day and helped us Celebrate Greatness!
See Everyone in Paradise!
