Angry Winter just made my 2nd Pavilion KAPUT!

Of course it just had to happen, how did I even think my 2nd pavilion could withstand the enormous weight of such heavy snowfall...



So the weight of the snow on the canvas made the middle buckle down, I first had to remove the snow, then remove the canvas, and two of the rods leading to the center are broken now. It's still operational but with very much reduced robustness. It can be fixed temporary by wiring the two rods to the middle pole, a more permanent repair would be to weld them (if I had the necessary equipment and knowledge; I have never welded before).

It will be snowing the whole week, so I have no idea if/how there will be some 'Q'ing going on the next weekend.

This is my second pavilion this year, the first one got trashed by heavy rain. If only those heavy duty pavilions wouldn't be that expensive over here...
