We purchased this great patio set on Craig's List for $120 brand new in the box three years ago. It was a $700 set so I was thrilled. Each of the last two years, come October 1st, I have removed the chair pads, stacked the chairs and placed the table in a location that would be safe from the branches that fall in the cooler months.
Sadly, I ignored the storm report that came out last week for the weekend and this is what we opened the curtains to this past Monday.
Sad, sad, sad.
