On Wednesday, May 29th the festival grounds in Skiatook Oklahoma were beautiful. The new stage prop resembling a log cabin was decorated and ready to go, all banners and directional signs were in place, and campers were rolling in.
Then the rains came! Nearly seven inches came down late that night and into the early morning. The flooding started about 6:00AM on May 30, the start of the usual two-day festival. Two things were on our minds: get all the campers out safely, and call the bands to cancel.
