You have drawn the Joker or Wild Card. I took this picture when I arrived around June 21 at the 2003 Utah National Rainbow Gathering and was shocked and dismayed to find that freak weather had brought a massive snowstorm. Many left. I stayed and soon the snow melted, the weather was beautiful and summery and people who came later had trouble believing the stories of snow. Accept the curve ball, and stay on your path. This too shall pass.
