Where were you?

I'm curious about where people were when the big storm struck on Sunday afternoon and what you did afterwards?

Personally, I was sitting on a tarp at mainstage during the first downpour no problem, but then, during the Tracy set I noticed how black the sky was getting, so I headed up to my parent's canopy. We were fine in there at first, but as the wind and rain picked up, we were suddenly in a battle to hold the structure down so it wouldn't blow away. We gripped the aluminum poles with our rain ponchos (as lightning crackled around us) and felt the pinging of the huge hail stones as they started to fall. It was a truly scary moment. After what felt like an eternity, the rain and wind finally let up and we started collecting our stuff to haul ass to our collective cars to wait it out. It was at that point that people coming up the hill were saying that another storm was on it's way worse than the previous one, there was a tornado warning, and security cancelled the rest of the festival and told everyone to head for some kind of solid cover. At that point we abandoned all hope and our tarp and high-tailed it to their car where we passed the raging river under the pedestrian bridge which had been a mere stream that morning and sat through the second round of rain before that let up and I escaped to my car. What a horrific ending to an otherwise awesome weekend. Hope everyone made it out alright!
